    Welcome to Arco Environmental Ltd

    Arco Environmental Ltd was founded in 1979. Russell Sharpley and Peter Clegg set up a business with 10 years of collective experience in the industry. It is a specialist sector focused on delivering safe asbestos removal and disposal. Asbestos is a material that was once used widely in construction – but has since been banned because of the dangers it poses to human health. When inhaled, asbestos fibres can damage the lungs causing numerous diseases including lung cancer and mesothelioma. In order to avoid these health risks, it is important that any asbestos that remains within existing buildings is removed carefully and correctly. This is something we are passionate about. Asbestos has no place in modern construction practices and unfortunately the industry found out the hard way how hazardous to health it is.

    That’s where we come in. We are experts in asbestos removal and we have been dedicated to excellence in this area for many years. We are an HSE licensed company that carries out all aspects of asbestos service, including:

    • surveys
    • re-insulation
    • reinstatement
    • soft strip demolition
    • minor building works

    We have been providing these services since 1979 throughout the UK and Europe, with an excellent track record of very satisfied clients. Doing things right is crucial in this business for the health and safety of clients and the general public and everything we do is in accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations of 2012, as well as all other related legislation and codes of practice. We offer a competitive and efficient service, from small scale domestic jobs to large construction and building related contracts.

    No job is too big or too small for us and we are committed to excellence in everything that we do.
