About Us

Environmental Waste Technologies Ltd was established as a specialist asbestos removal firm in Ireland in 1999 by co-founders Colin Goode & Pat Lawler. Both Colin & Pat had both recently returned from working for many years in the United States of America in the asbestos industry. They had served their time working primarily in New York but also in many other large cities and states along the eastern sea board where among their many clients were;

  • Met Life
  • Merrill Lynch
  • Teachers Insurance
  • Federated Department Stores
  • Exxon
  • Con Edison
  • New York University
  •  Harvard University
  • The Plaza Hotel
  • Boston Garden
  • Madison Square Gardens
  • Laguardia Airport
  • J.F.K International Airport
  • New York & New Jersey Port Authority,
  • The US Navy
  • The US Department of Defence
  • The United Nations

With many of these satisfied clients requesting Pat & Colin specifically for their more sensitive and difficult projects as they had built a reputation for getting the job done discreetly, effectively, safely, on time and on budget.

Upon returning home Colin & Pat saw a gap in the market and formed Environmental Waste Technologies Ltd and quickly got accepted as specialist asbestos removal contractors with the Health & Safety Authority & the Office of Public Works who were facing a shortage of skilled and specialised asbestos removal contractors to work on schools throughout the country. From very humble beginnings Environmental Waste Technologies Ltd grew rapidly and were quickly recognised as an industry leader bringing much improved standards and innovative solutions to complex asbestos problems to a variety and diverse section of clients and properties throughout Ireland such as highly sensitive Government Departments, Multi National Companies to out buildings in the wilds of Connemara and every where in between. We are regularly brought in by clients who require a discreet and confidential service have taken the so called cheaper options from non specialised contractors only to pay many multiples to correct damage and prevent legal consequences. We fully endorse and encourage independent third party assessment of our work and insist on it on many occasions. We work with many excellent consultants who are both 100% independent and competent to carry out and work with asbestos and other hazardous materials. We also know of many more who are neither qualified or competent  but advertise as specialist contractors and consultants with some companies even testing and verifying their own work which often leads to very poor standards a can have serious potential liabilities for the unsuspecting clients.
