Have you found Asbestos stored on your property?

Thank you for your interest in the Asbestos collection program.

The program is currently closed to new applicants. 


Please contact your local Council for advice on how you can lawfully dispose of asbestos


This was a grant funded program that had a limited number of collections available.

This program is subject to eligibility. The following conditions apply:

• The service is for non-friable asbestos only.
• Only material that has already been removed from a structure and is lying dormant on the property will be collected.
• The material will only be removed if it is able to be easily accessed by the contractor.  

The Free Asbestos Collection program has been developed by Councils to offer a lawful, convenient disposal for small quantities of asbestos, generated as a result of minor renovations and/or repairs. 


Illegal dumping of asbestos can have a serious impact on public health and cause contamination of our environment. 

Illegal dumping of asbestos can incur fines of up to $500,000 for individuals and $2 million for corporations. 

This project is a NSW Environment Protection Authority Waste and Sustainable Materials Strategy initiative, funded from the waste levy.
