Collection service for bonded asbestos

We can remove 'bonded asbestos' items such as:

  • corrugated roofing sheets
  • guttering
  • pipes

Items should measure no more than 180 centimetres by 60 centimetres (approximately) as we're only able to remove smaller items.

Request an asbestos collection only if you've removed the material from the property yourself. If a builder has removed the asbestos, they're responsible for disposing of it safely.

Request an asbestos collection

Contact us with the following information:

  • name, address and contact telephone number
  • collection address
  • quantity and type of items to be collected
  • details of where they will be left for collection

We'll then arrange an initial visit to assess the asbestos for collection. Following the assessment, we'll provide you with a free, no obligation quote.

If you're happy with the removal price, contact us again to arrange collection at a later date.

Asbestos assessments and collection days are the same as for bulky waste collections.

Allow a minimum of 5 working days' notice when booking a collection. We can't guarantee we'll be able to deal with your request if you call the day before the scheduled collection date for your area.
