    They bury it in the same pile only after normal business hrs. That's why the permit is so high, gotta pay OT.

    I believe the duct wrap your speaking of is called “Air Cell” and as far as I know it is an asbestos
    product. I would typically encounter it in basement gravity furnaces. Cats loved to dig their nails into it. We would recommend replacing ducts, wrapping or painting
