Asbestos is a hazardous substance and requires handling in the correct manner.
You should never put asbestos in your general waste bin.
Please note: for information on what you can and can’t put in your general waste bin, see what items can I put in my grey bin.
Disposing asbestos in your grey bin puts the health of our collection staff at risk.
Your rubbish is partially treated by manual handlers and any loose asbestos placed in your bin could be a threat to their health.
You should take all asbestos to your local recycling centre (tip).
Please note: Asbestos will only be accepted at your local recycling centre if wrapped in heavy duty polythene sheets. Asbestos wrapping materials are provided free of charge (in limited quantities) from any local recycling centre. Smaller pieces of asbestos should be double-bagged and securely sealed.
