Why are Asbestos Bags required?
Asbestos is a fibrous mineral which can be found in various building materials, such as cement. Asbestos was widely used for insulation purposes in residential buildings around the beginning of the 19th century thanks to its excellent heat insulation. During the 19th century, serious health problems related to asbestos fibers have arised, resulting in asbestos being prohibited in the UK, Ireland and in most European countries since the 1990's.
While asbestos is no longer used in the production of new insulation materials, the removal of insulation products and roofing sheets containing asbestos is a major part when it comes to renovating older buildings. Due to the carcinogenic nature of asbestos, the UK legislation requires special asbestos bags for the removal of asbestos waste.
