    So you double bagged it and took it to a abatement company for proper disposal?

    What PPE were you wearing while removing it?

    No need for any of that stuff. I'm sure he's already lived a long and fruitful life.

    It's federal law. I suggest you look up asbestos abatement.

    Plus, from the post, YOU took it out, not the homeowner. You are regulated by federal law.

    I know a local pastor. He was telling me a story about a church he served 20 or so years ago. The church got a report of lots of asbestos pipe insulation in the basement. BIG quote to abate the asbestos. One morning all of the stuff was gone. My pastor friend said nobody ever took claim, but several church members said the lord works in mysterious ways.

    That pipe doesn't have asbestos in it. Its just a double wall flue pipe that twists together.
