Disposing of asbestos
Asbestos must be disposed of properly.
Asbestos waste becomes classified as commercial hazardous waste and must be taken to a licensed landfill site under a consignment note issued by the Environment Agency.
If you need to dispose of asbestos please contact your local waste and recycling centre.
Asbestos is sometimes dumped on land, whether it be council-owned or open land. Any incidents should be reported to us.
