Disposing of asbestos

Can I take some asbestos to a household waste recycling centre?


We only accept small quantities of asbestos waste at our household waste recycling centres.

We will accept a maximum of 2 sheets or 2 metres of pipe from minor repair works to roofs and guttering. No return visits will be permitted.

The asbestos must be double wrapped in plastic sheeting or bags prior to arrival on site, you may be turned away if it is not. Once you have wrapped the asbestos up please also make sure that the bags or sheeting are taped in place so that no asbestos fibres can escape, this protects you and the site operatives when handling this material.

When you arrive on site please let a member of site staff know that you have asbestos waste and it will be dealt with accordingly.

Do not break or cut the asbestos to fit plastic bags. You should dampen the asbestos with water before lifting or moving it to help prevent the release of asbestos cement fibres.

If you have larger quantities of asbestos this must be disposed of by a private asbestos removal contractor.
