Just thought I would let people in Beacon know that asbestos removal appears to be happening at Sargent Elementary School. I haven't heard of this anywhere, and only became aware because my son was riding his bicycle there today (July 4th) and he told me about it. A notice indicates an "abatement" job is happening, but that notice doesn't mention asbestos (what would they be abating if not asbestos?). The waste containerd have asbestos warning labels, so it seems asbestos abatement is what is going on, unless they have to put an asbestos warning on any building materials that MIGHT have asbestos. But if there isn't any asbestos to worry about, why conduct an "abatement"?
Anyway, here are photos, and a quick video. The video shows plastic tubes with air being pumped through them, but the air just dissipates outside of the tubes, so I'm not sure what the purpose is. (I have more photos, but they are kind of a pain to load here)
