Asbestos Removal from A.R.Richards

A R Richards Ltd are licensed to collect, convey and deliver hazardous waste, (asbestos) from both domestic and commercial sites direct to landfill. All of our asbestos skips are enclosed to prevent the release of harmful asbestos fibres into the air.  Please note all our drivers are asbestos awareness and or ADR trained and are supplied with the appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE). 

Due to the very hazardous nature of asbestos, we also offer the following services:

  • Asbestos sample testing 
  • Non licenced asbestos removal via our qualified UKATA operatives 
  • Asbestos enclosed skips 

In addition, we also provide the following:

  • U.N certified asbestos disposable bags with hazard label 
  • U.N certified asbestos disposable flexible intermediate bulk material container (FIBC)


From identifying Asbestos through to complete removal A.R.Richards can fully support you. We have a team of experience professionals as well as the latest PPE and technologies to ensure that disposal is completed as safely as possible. According to the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), there are potentially half a million UK buildings containing asbestos. To keep your workplace or home safe we suggest that you avoid tampering with pipe insulation and ceiling tiles in old commercial buildings built in the 1960s and 70s.


If you are in doubt about the presence of Asbestos it is best to check, we can arrange for a team member to visit your site or you can bring a sample to Bensite. Please ensure that all samples are triple wrapped and sealed.


If samples are found to be Asbestos then A R Richards can offer you various removal options. We can offer specially designed bags for smaller amounts through to 40yd enclosed skips for full roofs or demolition jobs. To ensure that you have the correct reciprocal for the job please ask the team for their advice.



Personal Protective Equipment is essential when dealing with Hazardous Waste. We value everyone’s safety very highly. We are able to provide PPE for any Asbestos removal work that is undertaken. You MUST ensure that you are wearing:

  • Gloves
  • Protective Suits
  • Breathing Masks
  • Goggles

We suggest working to the HSE Guide for Correct PPE for Asbestos Handling, you can fid out more HERE.
