Mystery of dumped asbestos

First published in

ENVIRONMENTAL officers are investigating an unusual case of fly tipping in which asbestos has been dumped.

The sheets had been professionally wrapped and taped. Correct red marked bags had even been used for the smaller pieces that were all ready for safe disposal.

It was dumped at ground off Parr Stocks Road, Parr and Gorsey Lane, Bold.

Councillor Richard McCauley, cabinet member for Environmental Protection, said: "We do not believe this was dumped by an accredited asbestos removal company but clearly it has been done by someone who knows how the industry works and with access to the correct materials.

“However, the blue visqueen sheets and silver coloured tape are not typical and may provide a clue leading us to the culprit."

Anyone who has had asbestos removed and recognise the description of the wrapping is asked to contact the council in confidence.
