Search for disposal facilities

You can find nearby asbestos disposal facilities using the search tool above.

Always call or contact your disposal facility prior to transporting any asbestos waste.

Many facilities will only accept and handle asbestos waste at certain times, in order to maximise landfill efficiency and minimise health risks. Most facilities also have procedures (for example, asbestos waste wrapping requirements) that people disposing will need to follow carefully, to ensure asbestos waste is accepted by the facility.
