Asbestos removal and disposal

We do not accept asbestos at any of our recycling centres, even during out hazardous waste events. Our advice is that you should have asbestos removed by a specialist asbestos removal and disposal contractor. You can find specialist contractors in your local telephone directory or online.

You can pay to dispose of asbestos at the following facilities, but contact them first to ask about current charges, opening times, and correct disposal procedure. These facilities do not offer a collection or removal service.

(please note this is not Mile Cross Recycling Centre on Swanton Road but the transfer station next door that is operated by FCC Environment. It is a separate waste facility that shares the same building)
