Disposing of Asbestos Safely

Small quantities of asbestos can be disposed of free of charge at the Household Waste Recycling Centre, Burn Road, Hartlepool.

If you are taking asbestos to the Recycling Centre yourself, it needs to be double wrapped.

Due to high costs and difficulties associated with disposing of asbestos you are limited to two trips a year to dispose of this.

You can call into the Recycling Centre and collect secure bags, free of charge, for disposal of small amounts of asbestos.  Large amounts of asbestos, e.g. garage roofs, need to be disposed of by a specialist company (you can find these listed in the Yellow Pages).

Please telephone Customer Services on 01429 523333 for more detailed information or dowload our hazardous waste leaflet.
