Notes It should be borne in mind that indiscriminate dumping may have taken place on a particular landfill or contaminated site, and therefore the above categorisation should be treated as a guide only to determining operational procedures. Landfill sites licensed to accept asbestos waste or other sites where significant deposits of bound or unbound asbestos occur justifiably have a RED designation, warranting the highest level of caution. However, many contaminated sites may have only very small quantities of asbestos, often present as asbestos cement, which (while presenting a hazard) may not in themselves warrant the highest level of protection.
