Materials that are designated as less than 1% asbestos do not require abatement. Why doesn’t Recovery 1 accept these materials as non-asbestos?

Researchers still have not determined a "safe level" of exposure but we know the greater and the longer the exposure, the greater the risk of contracting an asbestos related disease. Unlike transfer stations and landfills, our employees work directly with the materials we process, and we do not want to expose them to any asbestos containing materials. Therefore, we require that all test results indicate that asbestos is Non-Detectable in all materials brought to Recovery 1 for processing.
