    Got a CU change coming up in the next month or so and have a dilema.

    The old CU has asbestos in the fuse carriers, having done this numerous times working for a company (they had asbestos disposal procedures where we double bagged the small items and they were collected) I havent done one whilst working for myself. The customer is aware of the asbestos and adding the cost to the bill isnt a problem. Just need a ball park figure for how much to charge them.

    Thanks in advance.

    put it in a plastic bag. take it to your local council tip/recycling depot, or wtatever the loony left want to call it tomorrow, and chances are you'll get a guy in a hi-vis from WWII tell you to just chuck it in the household waste skip, mate.

    edit: my sweaty socks are more hazardous.

    I can challenge your edit on levels of hazardness.

    off subject a bit
    when is pigeon sh!t not pigeon sh!t?

    the answer is when it's removed.....
    when pigeon sh!t is removed it becomes bio-hazardous waste...
    I jest you not.

    I would make an enquiry to tech support with NIC, ELESCA or NAPIT whichever your signed upto.
    and ask them what to do with it.

    Also, don't forget your waste transfer licence.

    Actually this could be a thread for all those Domestic Installer's on here?

    Whenever I've worked on a site with asbestos around, the professional asbestos removal company takes care of it.

    and then dumps it under a school playground. it's OK though, coz. it's only a state school. ( quote from alan b

    Same here, whenever there has been asbestos, men come, put on silly suits, take it away and usually i got a day off while they did it as the site was shut down... ahhh the good old days!

    Got to be the best answer, perhaps not the last bit though:) and making your price not look like ripping them off.

    I will prob add on £30 to cover taking it to the council tip, or i could bury it in the garden and have done with it. I wouldnt have even mentioned it but the customer for some reason has insisted in its safe removal after some other guy told her thats what she had to do.

    so. get a freezer bag, write in it with marker "asbestos waste--for safe disposal" put the bits in the bag, then bin it.
