When broken up, asbestos fibres are a health hazard. So if you’re throwing away an item containing asbestos, please double bag it or wrap it in heavy-duty polythene. We don’t accept asbestos water tanks.
If you’re not sure how to manage asbestos in your house, get advice from a licenced contractor. If you find any rubbish left by the road that you suspect contains asbestos, don’t touch it and report it immediately.
