FAQ

Most frequently asked questions and answers.

A – Transtox has years of industry experience, and through this we have discovered that asbestos cannot be 100% safely contained using current practices by wrapping asbestos with plastic sheeting.

We have observed throughout the years that there is a definite disadvantage to adopting the plastic sheeting method when removing and disposing of asbestos. Plastic may be incorrectly sized or fitted inside skip bins and other forms of packaging, therefore not containing the material safely. Our bag systems will not only maximise your work place and logistics efficiency, they will also provide a positive public perception of your business, understanding the importance of a safe, well-managed process. Transtox bags seeks to overcome all WHS/OH&S issues for workers and the community, eliminating potential issues one may have when containing and transporting asbestos waste products.

Q – Can Transtox bags be re-used?

A – Once a Transtox bag contains hazardous materials, such as asbestos, the bag and material must be contained, transported and disposed of at an appropriate licenced facility.

Q – Can tell me more about tracking your bags?

A – Transtox and its partners are in design phase to provide start to-finish tracking visibility of the asbestos waste from source to disposal, via our innovative GPS identification system. The Transtox tracking system is compatible with smartphones and tablet devices. Currently all bags are tagged with identification forms to coincide with the EPA Waste Locate.

Q – Why track a bag?

A – Clause 79 of the Protection of the Environment Operations (waste) Regulation 2014 legally requires transporters to track a Transtox asbestos bag movement of any load over 10 square meters, or 100 kilograms of asbestos waste. Transtox offers the tracking option via a tagging system to be filled out by the customer to start the process from source, to transporter, to disposal as well as registering the transporters information into both EPA ‘WasteLocate’ QR code and Transtox GPS system . The idea is to track each item and therefore eliminate illegal dumping and to create a ‘big brother’ effect. Not only this, but also to create a well-managed sensis on quantities of disposed asbestos products annually throughout Australia and New Zealand.
