Removal of loose friable asbestos or amounts of bonded sheeting greater than 10 square metres must be done by a licensed person and disposed of at a licensed facility. It is illegal to dispose of asbestos waste in domestic garbage bins. It is also illegal to re-use, recycle or illegally dump asbestos products.

We have developed important policies in relation to building processes:

Demolition of structures require development consent except where it fits the exempt development requirements under the State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008.

Licenced facilities

Always contact the landfill beforehand to find out when asbestos is accepted and any requirements for delivering asbestos to the landfill.
