Found This In The Garage...What Do I Do With It?

Found this in the back of a drawer in the garage. Must be from the previous owners...

What on earth do I do with it?

Yes, thank you -- the label told me that much.

I'm familiar with asbestos...I just didn't figure I should toss this in the trash. Seems like it should go to a waste disposal site or something?

It's not hazardous unless it's in dust form. Keep it in the wrapper and toss it if in the trash you don't want to keep it. Otherwise keep it and cut it with scissors or a knife if you want to use it. Just don't file it or cut it with a rotary cutter or grinder etc.

If there is enough to make a matt a few layers thick it would make great heat shield for brazing pipes in wall cavities. Not needed very often but when it is it's invaluable.

If this were JM, I'd tell you to mail it to the EPA office in DC, marked postage due.

It's old enough that unbagging it would probably make a huge mess. Best to not disturb the original packaging, and handle it as little as possible. Find out from your city's solid waste division if they'll take it (use the website, rather than calling them). If they don't have a provision for disposal of small quantities, you may be screwed.
