The numerous strict guidelines from our government regarding asbestos disposal just prove how dangerous is this substance to human health. From simple warts, asbestos can also cause cancer. This explains why asbestos waste disposal is a sensitive job and that not everybody is allowed to do it. The "Disposal of waste containing asbestos" law directly instructs not only those people working directly with asbestos but also the vast majority.

Basically, the law advises people to follow only three ways to dispose any form of asbestos material. The first way to dispose asbestos, obviously, is to hire a licensed company. These companies have the right knowledge and resources that allow them to dispose of asbestos in the safest way possible. But the law also allows civilians to dispose of the asbestos material themselves in the meantime, given that there's a need to dispose the asbestos material as soon as possible but no asbestos removal company is responding to their request for assistance. But they need to still contact a removal company to be able to "thoroughly" dispose of the waste asbestos. In the event that no asbestos waste disposal company is still responding after many tries (but this is very impossible to happen), the law allows the civilians to take the material to an approved landfill, provided that they covered it properly with asbestos disposal bags.

Actually, many actions concerning asbestos are illegal. For instance, it is illegal for a homeowner to remove the sidings in his house by himself. In most of our states here in the US, such an action is highly illegal as sidings contain large amounts of asbestos in them.
