Friable & Non-Friable Asbestos

Both friable and non-friable asbestos containing materials can be disposed of at Metro Park East or Metro Park West Landfills. Although non-friable asbestos is not thought to pose as a great risk to those exposed to it as friable asbestos, it still presents risk when the fibers are disrupted through demolition processes that occur during landfill compaction. For this reason, we handle managing disposable the same for friable and non-friable. 

  • Friable asbestos consists of materials with "loose" asbestos fibers that become airborne easily presenting a risk to those exposed. 
  • Non-friable asbestos consists of material where the asbestos fibers are "bound-up" in the material and are not as readily airborne (such as floor tile).
