Asbestos is a hazardous waste so must be handled with care. We accept small amounts of asbestos at our Household Recycling Centres (HRC's), but you must phone 0345 6789 007 in advance to check availability.
What types of asbestos are accepted?
We will only accept small amounts of cement-bonded asbestos e.g. from corrugated garage roofs. If you have large quantities or asbestos from a commercial building such as a farm, you must hire a professional contractor to deal with this waste.
Important safety information
