About Asbestos Wastes

  • In the past, asbestos was used in around 3,000 products manufactured worldwide, most commonly in the construction, car manufacturing and textile industries.
  • From the 1940s until the late 1980s, fibro was one of the most commonly used building products. This is a bonded product containing around 15% asbestos.
  • Fibro was widely used as wall and ceiling sheeting in houses, workplaces and government buildings because of its strength and resistance to chemicals and heat.
  • Only fibro products made before 1987 contain asbestos.
