Collection of waste
Asbestos is classified as a hazardous material. There are rules about how it can be transported and where it can be disposed of. If you are planning to remove asbestos yourself, you need to contact your local council first. They can tell you how and where to dispose of materials containing asbestos. Your local council can also tell you about any planning approvals or permits that are required before you begin.
