The Church Road Transfer Station (CRTS) does not accept asbestos waste for disposal. CRTS facility staff will pre-screen the gypsum brought by homeowners, demolition contractors, carpenters and other contractors working on buildings built prior to 1990.
Homeowners' gypsum waste from pre-1990 buildings will be treated as suspect asbestos-containing material and allowed to proceed with the understanding that this material may contain asbestos. Facility staff will instruct homeowners to unload into a separate lined container.
Contractors with pre-1990 gypsum waste will be refused access unless they produce lab analysis that the gypsum does not contain asbestos. Preľ1990 gypsum that is clear of asbestos may be recycled.
