Tires are an important part of our lives. They help us get to where we need to be, and they provide traction for the vehicle on the road. Tires also have a life span that is dependent on how often you use them. Once they become too old or worn out, it's time to dispose of them properly so they don't cause harm anywhere near your home or business. In this blog post, we will discuss how to legally dispose of old tires in your state with any applicable laws.
Asbestos is a mineral that has been used for many years in both commercial building construction and insulation due to its fire-resistant properties. It was once hailed as the “miracle mineral” but, because of potential health risks, it is now banned in most countries. Friable asbestos can be crumbled with your hands while non-friable asbestos cannot be crushed by hand. If you are unsure if there might be any friable or non-friable asbestos on your property, contact an environmental consultant to help you identify the material and dispose of it properly.
Waste can be broken down into types, based on how the law sees it and how it needs to be processed. Longstanding U.S. laws like 40 CFR part 261.31 define certain types of waste as hazardous. Other regulations define where certain types of waste have to be sent for disposal. Making your way through this maze can be complex, but it doesn’t have to be.
