Asbestos Disposal

Asbestos is subject to regulation by many regulatory bodies. For the purposes of UW System campus management of asbestos waste, UW–Milwaukee provides an excellent webpage on this topic at http://www.uwm.edu/Dept/EHSRM/HAZEXCEPTIONS/a.html .

Also, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has a large amount of information available online at http://www.dnr.state.wi.us/org/aw/air/reg/asbestos/asbestos.htm .

This publication was prepared for environmental, health and safety staff at University of Wisconsin System campuses, to assist in finding resources and information for regulatory compliance. It is not intended to render legal advice. (Click here to read the full legal disclaimer.)
