What is it?
Any product that contains, or is suspected of containing, asbestos. At the Resource Recovery Centre any product suspected of being asbestos will be treated as asbestos unless the customer can provide lab certification that it is not asbestos.
Thousands of products have contained asbestos over the years. The presence of asbestos can only be reliably determined by lab testing.
Products can include:
- Excavated material with asbestos off cuts
- Floor and ceiling tiles, etc.
- Insulation around pipes and wires
Charges apply. See Fees & Charges.
Important information regarding the transportation of asbestos
Where more than 10m² or 100kg of asbestos is being moved in one load, this movement must be tracked and reported through the EPA. See WasteLocate for further information.
Bringing asbestos to the RRC
All asbestos products must be brought into the Resource Recovery Centre in approved asbestos bags.
