I used to deal a lot in asbestos issues in my past life. The best
thing to do is call your local state agency, start with the
environmental people, and ask them what you should do. The state
laws vary sooooo much. It makes a difference whether you are a “home
owner” doing asbestos work or a company. It is easier to deal with
it if you are a “home owner”.
Put the asbestos in two bags, each sealed separately, and find out
locally where you can dispose of it through your state environmental
division. It should not be a big deal. I should also mention, in
the first bag make sure you saturate the pad with a lot of soap and
water solution. Mix some dishsoap and water together, this lessons
the water surface tension and it’s easier for the water to go into
the pad, which means the fibers will not be released into the air if
the bag is broken.
You shouldn’t have any white suits in your house. Believe me, this
is nothing to be upset about. Just dispose of it properly.
