We offer a service to residents for removing 'bonded asbestos' items such as corrugated roofing sheets, guttering and pipes. Items should measure no more than 1.8m x 0.6m (approx) as we are currently only able to remove smaller items of bonded asbestos.

You can only request an asbestos collection if you have removed the material from the property yourself.

If a builder has removed the asbestos, they are responsible for disposing of it safely.

Request an asbestos collection

Call our customer centre with the following information:

  • your name, address and contact telephone number
  • the collection address
  • quantity and type of items to be collected
  • details of where they will be left for collection
  • any other information that will help us to process your request

We will then arrange an initial visit, to assess the asbestos to be collected. After the assessment, you will be provided with a free, no obligation quote.

If you are happy with the price for removal, you can then call us again to arrange the collection at a later date.

We can visit to assess or collect asbestos on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays according to the ward you live in. The days for asbestos assessments and collections are the same as for other bulky waste collections.

You should allow a minimum of 5 working days' notice when booking a collection. If you call the day before the scheduled collection date for your area, we can't guarantee that there will be available resource to deal with your request.

Preparing asbestos for collection

You should prepare your asbestos for collection according to the guidelines on disposing of bonded asbestos safely.

Asbestos should be presented outside, in an accessible place, double wrapped in heavy duty plastic, not bin bags or carrier bags.

Guide to charges for asbestos collection

These prices are guidelines only, as it may be difficult for you to assess the quantity of asbestos you have.

If you're not happy with the advised quote after your initial assessment, you're not obliged to proceed with the collection.

  • up to 200kg - £103 (including VAT)
  • over 200kg - price will be confirmed after assessment
