Household Asbestos Collections
Asbestos is a dangerous material and should normally be handled
only by qualified contractors. Where a contractor removes asbestos
from your home they should also dispose of the waste material they
Asbestos cement was a common roofing and building material some
years ago. It is normally a grey colour and hard and brittle. It
contains a small proportion of asbestos fibres and is not normally
dangerous unless it is broken up or crushed. Damage can release
fibres into the air that could be breathed in.
REMEMBER: If you are in doubt whether you have asbestos in
your home or workplace dont touch it! Call a contractor to check
what the material is before you handle it.
