High Quality Removal and Disposal of all Types of Asbestos

Three main types of asbestos can be found in the UK.

  • Blue (crocidolite
  • White (chrysotile)
  • Brown (amosite)


Asbestos is responsible for over 5000 deaths each year. It has been proven to cause issues such as lung disease, lung cancer, Mesothelioma, and other illnesses. For this reason, asbestos will need to be removed by a professional.

The DES team can perform the entire asbestos removal process, including survey and testing, encapsulation, safe removal, and disposal to a high standard.

(Encapsulation is the process of applying a protective layer onto the asbestos-containing material (ACM), providing protection from ACM damage).

DES is qualified and equipped to correctly dispose of Asbestos waste. When removed, the Asbestos will be wrapped or double bagged and will either be placed into an enclosed asbestos skip, and directly transported to a licenced landfill, or for smaller volumes of waste, placed into our vehicles segregated waste box and transported to an asbestos waste transfer station for disposal.

Incorrect disposal of asbestos is illegal and will result in a fine or possible prison sentence.
