Question:

Is this broken ceiling tile an asbestos hazard? [Pics Included]?

A few months back, a leak in the ceiling allowed water to pool atop a ceiling tile and cause it to collapse in the center. The debri was swept or mopped up, I don't know (but the floor has since been mopped) -- however, the tile, still broken, is just hanging there from the ceiling, and has been for all this time.

Answer:

No, it's not. -they didn't start using grid ceilings until the late, late 80's and that isn't even remotely asbestos laced. I thought maybe by your post you were dealing with the perforated stick on tiles that affix to the ceiling.(they are 10 X 10) The tile you have can't be older than '89. Go to Home Depot and pick up a new one, 5 bucks.
