United Waste Disposal can safely manage hazardous materials found during the deconstruction process, capturing and disposing of these materials safely and in accordance with DEQ regulations. We offer remediation & demolition services in controlled environments and related environmental cleanup work.
The first step in preparing for a remodel/demolition project will be to verify the presence of any hazardous material within the scope of the project. UWD offers full service through this process. After a survey has confirmed the presence of hazardous materials, we will implement a plan to properly remove and dispose of hazardous materials, keeping the safety of community and workers our first priority.
- Take samples throughout
- Testing at an accredited laboratory.
- Follow DEQ removal and disposal procedure

Many buildings still contain asbestos, which was used in spray applied flame retardant, thermal system insulation, and in a variety of other materials. Asbestos was sometimes “flocked” above false ceilings, inside technical ducts, and in many other small spaces where firefighters would have difficulty gaining access. Structural components like asbestos panels were also used.
Production was banned in the U.S. in 1978. However, the ban allowed installers to use up remaining stocks, so houses built as late as 1986 could still have asbestos in their acoustic ceilings. The only way to be sure is to remove a sample and have it tested by a competent laboratory.
