You shouldn't remove asbestos-containing material yourself - it is a dangerous operation which can result in the release of small asbestos fibres into the air. Breathing in these fibres can eventually lead to a number of fatal diseases. We recommend that you employ a professional and licensed contractor to remove asbestos. Please go to the following website for further information: www.arca.org.uk
Our recycling centres have limited disposal facilities for cement-bonded asbestos which has been removed by householders. To order a set of bags visit the HRC Van Booking form. Once you have received these bags and securely wrapped the asbestos up please book your visit using the HRC Van Booking form.
Please note we only provide a limited number of bags for this purpose and only those bags will be accepted when you deliver these to your nearest Household Recycling Centre.
Call 0845 602 9344* for more details if you are having trouble using this online service.
*Calls to this number cost 5 pence per minute plus your telephone company's access charge
We cannot accept any asbestos removed by a contractor as this is commercial waste.
