Disposing of asbestos

Asbestos must be disposed of properly.

Asbestos waste from commercial activities must be taken to a licensed landfill site under a consignment note issued by the Environment Agency. Visit this Government webpage for more information.

If you need to dispose of asbestos from your own domestic property please contact your local waste and recycling centre.

Asbestos is sometimes dumped on land, whether it be council-owned or open land. Visit our webpage 'Dumped rubbish that is an immediate and serious threat to safety' for further information on how to report this.
