Asbestos should NOT be placed in any kerbside bin, public place bin or mixed with other wastes.
There are very specific requirements for the handling and disposal of asbestos due to the significant health risk to you, our community and the environment if not disposed of correctly.
Asbestos can be disposed of safely at Summerhill Waste Management Centre, however, you must contact us on 4974 2000 at least 24 hours prior to bringing the asbestos to Summerhill Waste Management Centre. If you don't contact us and don't comply with the specific conditions for the safe disposal of asbestos, we will be unable to accept your waste.
Residents can use a bulk waste self-haul (tipping) voucher to bring up to 100kg of asbestos to Summerhill Waste Management Centre at no charge. If you don't have a voucher or have more than 100kg Fees and Charges will apply.
