Asbestos disposal bags are made of industrial weight polyethylene and have an approved asbestos warning on them that says Danger/Contains Asbestos Fibers/Avoid Creating Dust/Cancer and Lung Disease Hazard. Some disposal bags come non printed but is not suggested. Regulations require that you put asbestos material into the asbestos disposal bags while it is still damp. The asbestos disposal bags should not have more than thirty to fifty pounds of material placed in them.

Many places require you to double bag your asbestos waste using the asbestos disposal bags and sealing each of the asbestos disposal bags with duct tape.
