Asbestos can be found, for example, in the insulation of old heating pipes and air shafts, fire protection, moisture and noise insulations, floor and ceiling sheets (such as Vartti roofing), building facade coatings (such as minerit boards), and roofing felt of old houses (mostly roofing felt used before 1980).
Any asbestos disassembly work should be carried out by a demolition company authorised to work by the regional occupational safety authority. The company packs asbestos waste separately from other waste, into strong sacks and labels them. It also ensures that the documentation required for transporting the waste is in order.
