What is asbestos litter picking?

Asbestos Litter Picking is the process of manually removing suspected asbestos containing materials from a site, usually from contaminated soil or when a building has collapsed before proper asbestos removal and demolition could take place. It is common on construction sites, sites earmarked for development, or an area where a building has collapsed or exploded.
