How to deal with asbestos

Asbestos can only be deposited at the Wiltshire Road Household Waste and Recycling Centre. Please ensure that the following instructions are adhered to:

  • Ensure that all asbestos is double bagged, wrapped and sealed in suitable heavy duty plastic bags (such as soil, rubble or garden waste bags (available from most supermarkets and DIY stores) or heavy duty plastic sheeting (available from builder’s merchants).
  • Deposit the material into the asbestos container yourself
  • Follow the instructions of the site staff at all times.

Site staff will inspect the bags used to deposit asbestos. If the bags are split or waste is protruding or they are not sealed, they will not be accepted. Also, if the bags are not of sufficient strength and split when lifted they will not be accepted.

Please note that asbestos delivered in carrier bags, hessian bags, pedal bin liners or similar lightweight black plastic bags, wrapped in clingfilm or bubble wrap will not be accepted.
