Asbestos

Although we are not licensed to collect and remove asbestos, we do need to be notified immediately of any fly-tipped asbestos on the highway.

On receipt of the report we will notify a licensed contractor who will then come and remove it.

If asbestos is on your own property, you will need to arrange for an approved hazardous waste contractor who will collect and dispose of it in the correct manner.

Frequently asked questions (Asbestos):

Can I take asbestos down to my local tip?
No the tip will not accept any asbestos waste as it is a hazardous material

What do I do if I find fly tipped asbestos?
You must report it to the council immediately to avoid it being further damaged and causing more pollution to wildlife and the environment or even the possibility of it being handled by children

How do I handle asbestos safely?
Always remember asbestos is a dangerous material so avoid handling it yourselves and ensure that you contact a reputable contractor to dispose of it safely.

Other hazardous waste:

We are not licensed to collect hazardous waste such as paint, household and garden chemicals, cooking oil, used engine oil, batteries, mobile phones, fluorescent tubes, light bulbs and gas bottles. However these materials can be disposed of in the correct manner down at the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC), Bittern Way or by a contractor. Please note asbestos cannot be taken to the HWRC.
