Northwood NH, October 23: RPF Associates, Inc., (RPF) an environmental health and safety (EH&S)
consulting and testing firm, has had their license renewed for an approved
New Hampshire asbestos disposal site contractor by the New Hampshire Department
of Environmental Services. Materials that contained asbestos were manufactured
in local plants throughout New Hampshire for nearly 100 years. Manufacturing
ceased in the mid 1980s, however, the legacy of waste disposal still plagues
local communities, especially Nashua and Hudson where asbestos waste products
were given away as free fill to local property owners. Due to the free
fill, asbestos waste can be found on and around public, residential and
commercial properties throughout Nashua and Hudson It can also be found
beneath existing transportation structures, canals, and railroads beds.
For ADS sites RPF routinely provides site characterizations, remediation
plan design, site monitoring, air testing, and regulatory liaison services
for public and private clients throughout the affected areas. RPF is also
the NH State-Wide contract consultant.
With offices in Northwood, NH and Amesbury, MA, RPF provides indoor air
quality assessments; hazardous material testing; mold assessments; construction
safety; OSHA and EPA regulatory compliance services; and site inspections
for asbestos, lead-based paint, and other environmental hazards. In addition,

training programs for clients throughout New England.
