Asbestos back in the news – right and wrong way to dispose of it…

Due to new rules by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) regarding Asbestos Abatement, all loads of remodel, demolition or RV materials hauled to Lincoln County transfer stations will now require asbestos paperwork before any material will be accepted if built prior to January 1, 2004.

The process for each transfer station may vary over time regarding what is accepted and what paperwork is required. Please “Know Before you Go” to dispose of any material that may contain asbestos. Please take a look at the Lincoln County Haulers Association Asbestos Flyer for more information about asbestos materials.

DEQ has very specific rules regarding the handling and disposal of materials containing asbestos. DEQ also requires an asbestos survey be performed by an accredited inspector to determine the presence of asbestos in or on a structure prior to any demolition activities. Lincoln County, our local waste and recycling companies and the transfer stations they operate must comply with these rules.

Depending on the size of your project, a considerable cost can result from inspections (if required) and proper disposal. To dispose of these materials in certified landfills in the valley fees are much higher than regular trash.

It is not legal, or acceptable, to dump demolition materials on other public or private land to try to avoid the cost. Individuals or companies caught dumping materials illegally will be prosecuted as allowed by law.
