Asbestos removal

The new state government promised to remove all asbestos from Government schools in the last election. Last week's state budget included $42 million for Labor's $100 million asbestos-removal plan, and $35 million for 120 new portable classrooms. A statewide audit will be completed by June next year, and will allow the department to provide an estimate of the cost of removing asbestos in government schools. ( It is estimated that it will take more than $100 million to remove our asbestos)

It has also recently been revealed that;

- there will be no public document revealing how much money every Victorian school receives under the Gonski school-funding agreement. But individual schools will still be provided with a break down of Gonski money in their budgets.

- disadvantaged families will begin to receive payments from the camps, sports and excursions fund from the middle of this year.

  1. The abatement teams use the combination of water and a wetting agent to settle the asbestos particles onto the floor, and the surfaces of the Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM). The process becomes simple and streamlined as they use the advanced equipment and the tools for the operation. asbestos removal companies
