PSA Newsletter

BEA requests listing as a 'Qualified Vendor' for the proper identification, management and disposal of Asbestos and Asbestos-containing materials. 

This Public Service Announcement newsletter below has been distributed to the building trades/contractors' community, and as the agencies involved in project permitting or the receipt of construction/demo debris, we want to collaborate with you to assure these banned materials stay out of your municipal waste stream. Thank you for your consideration.


Welcome to BEA's complimentary edition of our Newsletter with helpful information regarding Asbestos and Radon.

Our specialized staff offers insights and advice to help preserve our common interests in protecting public health and the sensitive Cape environment.

This fire-resistant material was once commonly used to insulate pipes, in ceiling or floor tiles (such as pictured above) and many other residential and commercial applications.

Asbestos diseases are debilitating, even deadly. Although the EPA has banned some asbestos products in the United States, in-place asbestos continues to pose a danger.

Inhaling the microscopic fibers is associated with mesothelioma, a cancer that can be caused by even brief exposures. The prognosis is bleak for this disease with most victims only surviving a year or two from diagnosis.

Make your remodeling or renovation project safe with ACM screening before you begin.
We hope you find these and upcoming articles that BEA will share with you to be useful, and we welcome your suggestions -- tell us what you wish to hear more about! Perhaps your idea will be discussed in an upcoming edition.

Do I Have to Worry About Radon?

The only way to know if there is radon in your home is to screen for it:

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas; the EPA estimates that approximately 21,000 Americans die each year as a result of radon-induced lung cancer.


Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers.


About 1 in 4 homes in Massachusetts have the potential to exceed the EPA standard for radon concentrations in indoor air.


In 2005, the U.S. Surgeon General re-issued a radon warning that in 1988 had been dispatched along with the MA Department of Public Health and the EPA, urging all homes be tested.


Winter heating season is the best time to screen, as it is the time of year levels are at their highest.
