Collection service for bonded asbestos

Bulky collection service

Bulky waste collections, including asbestos collections, are currently operating normally, and can be booked by calling telephone: 01904 551550.

If you've had a collection cancelled due to coronavirus, we'll be in touch to rearrange your collection.

Get information about bulky waste collections during COVID-19.

We can remove 'bonded asbestos' items such as:

  • corrugated roofing sheets
  • guttering
  • pipes

Items should measure no more than 1.8m x 0.6m (approx) 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.

We can visit to assess or collect asbestos according to the ward you live in on:

  • Tuesdays
  • Wednesdays
  • Thursdays

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.

Preparing asbestos for collection

Prepare your asbestos for collection according to the guidelines on disposing of bonded asbestos safely.

Present your asbestos:

  • outside, in an accessible place
  • double wrapped in heavy duty plastic
  • not in bin bags or carrier bags

Guide to charges for asbestos collection

As you may not be able to accurately assess how much asbestos you have, prices are for guidance only:

  • up to 200kg - £105 (including VAT)
  • over 200kg - price will be confirmed after assessment

Note: You're not obliged to proceed with the collection if you're not happy with our quote after your assessment.
