Hi, please excuse my random question,

Im really not sure who to ask, so i guessed this may be a good place to start :)

Years ago (30+) i was given a collection of rocks, this included a piece labelled as asbestos. My mum covered it in stickytape at the time as she didnt want anything to come off it.

My daughter's now expressed interest in having the rocks and I really dont like the idea of having the asbestos there. My question is a: should i be concerned - b: How should i go about getting rid of this piece if needs be? (ideally i just want rid of it)

many thanks for any help!
Nick

To keep ask your local HazMat Office if you can coat it in epoxy. Otherwise let them advise you on how to dispose of it. HazMat regulations vary from state to state and country to country. HazMat is US vernacular for Hazardous Materials.

If they won't come get it. Suggest putting it in a ZipLoc and going to Health Dept with it. Would be interested in their reaction. Or a hospital would likely have hazmat disposal.
