How do you know the material is asbestos? Asbestos is certainly a pain to deal with, but in my experience it has to be documented that the stuff is actually asbestos. That comes from a simple lab analysis. Has this been done? If not, check local regs on testing and proving the stuff is actually the real deal. You can inquire anonomously.
I brought several loads of asbestos siding to the dump several years ago and (I feel kinda dumb admitting this) told the attendant I had a special load. He told me, “we can’t be sure what that stuff is without a lab report.” Maybe he simply didn’t want to do the paperwork, but I took that to mean keep yer mouth shut in the future, Charles. Good luck.
