Asbestos information for all transfer station customers

Need to dispose of asbestos at Olympic View Transfer Station? Follow these five steps carefully.

 

Step 1: Schedule required appointment. 

Call Olympic View Transfer Station at 360.674.2297 to schedule an appointment. Call at least 24 hours before your desired delivery day.

Appointments are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between 10am and 3pm.

 

Step 2: Prepare the asbestos materials.

We cannot accept asbestos-containing materials that are not prepared according to these instructions.

Friable Asbestos: Wet all asbestos-containing materials with water or a suitable non-hazardous wetting agent. Double wrap all the materials in sturdy and leak-proof plastic bags (6-millimeter minimum). Seal each bag. Bags cannot weigh more than 50 pounds each.

If larger pieces will not fit into a bag, double wrap the wet materials in heavy plastic sheeting (6-millimeter minimum) and seal the package with duct tape.

Non-Friable Asbestos (Shingles and Roofing): Wet all asbestos-containing materials with water or a suitable non-hazardous wetting agent. You do not need to bag non-friable asbestos (like shingles and roofing).

 

Step 3: Attach required label to each bag of friable asbestos.

We cannot accept bagged friable asbestos that is not labeled with the Friable Asbestos Label. You do not need to bag nor label non-friable asbestos (like shingles and roofing).

 

Step 4: Complete Asbestos Waste Shipment Report for each load.

We cannot accept your asbestos-containing load if you do not bring a completed Asbestos Waste Shipment Report for each load.

 

Step 5: Deliver at the scheduled time.

Bring your asbestos and Asbestos Waste Shipment Report to Olympic View Transfer Station for your scheduled appointment. Be prepared to pay current disposal fees.
