You can take small quantities of cement bonded asbestos, free of charge, to seven of our household waste recycling centres.

The asbestos is safely landfilled. For safety reasons, cement bonded asbestos must be double bagged or wrapped in two layers of thick plastic. Any joints or openings must be securely sealed with strong tape. If your material is not securely wrapped in this way, you will not be able to leave it and will have to remove it from the site.

If you have more than ten sheets of asbestos (of approximate size 1.8m by 1.2m per sheet) please contact us prior to your visit to ensure there is space available in the container.

Materials containing asbestos are commonly found in buildings. It is not unsafe generally, as long as it remains sealed and undisturbed.

The current guidance is to manage this rather than remove it. Any concerns over asbestos should be made to the environmental health department of your district council.
