Asbestos disposal

Asbestos is a hazardous material and must be handled extremely carefully. Please see the health and safety information on the HSE website.

Asbestos can only be disposed of at a licensed disposal site.

Your local licensed asbestos disposal site is George Street West household waste and recycling centre.

Staff at the site can provide you with the correct type of wrapping required to package the asbestos, at no cost. You will be given instructions on how to package and deliver the waste.

You must ensure the asbestos is wrapped/bagged securely when brought to the site to be disposed of.

There is a limit of 6 bags (or equivalent), which can be taken to the site.

Due to health and safety, anyone visiting the site without the correct packaging, asbestos not appropriately wrapped or with more than 6 bags of asbestos will be refused.
