    • The wrapped non-friable asbestos shall not be mixed with other solid waste.
    • Containers designated for disposal of non-friable shall exclude any other type of solid waste. Mixed loads will not be accepted by transporters nor Cinder Lake Landfill.
    • Containers holding non-friable asbestos materials shall be carefully unloaded and placed in a designated location at Cinder Lake Landfill. Dumping using a hydraulically lifted bed of a truck (dump truck) is not permitted, as the poly wrap may be torn open.
