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 produce.

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 don't touch it! Call a contractor to check what the material is before you handle it.

The Council is not currently able to provide a collection service for asbestos. Please contact a licensed contractor to remove asbestos from your property.
