Asbestos components in heating systems
A common concern for home owners is their heating system which can frequently contain asbestos components. This can include boilers, warm air systems and storage heaters manufactured up to 1999. These heating systems can contain gaskets, strings, seals, insulation and other internal components. Asbestos was used in heating systems from 1910 onwards, although particularly during the 1950s to 1980.
If required, we have provision for you to drop off asbestos containing boilers to one of our yards. They can accommodate any sized vehicle and once unloaded we will provide you with a hazardous waste consignment note on the same day via email or hard copy. The fee for this service is around £240 per boiler.
We also offer a removal and collection service for our teams to come out and remove the boiler from site which will then be loaded onto our van and taken back to our yard.
Again, once unloaded we will provide you with a hazardous waste consignment note on the same day via email or hard copy. The fee for this service starts at £300 per boiler.
Our yards can be opened 24/7 so long as prior notice is given to receive delivery of the asbestos waste.
To keep you safe, we have compiled a list of known heating systems which contain internal asbestos components although please be aware that the list is not exhaustive and does not include external materials such as flue pipes and lagging.
