Asbestos Disposal

Asbestos Disposal
Asbestos containing waste (ACW) must be consigned as soon as possible in a safe manner by a registered waste carrier to a dump licensed to accept asbestos. There are two exceptions to this rule – agricultural ACW and domestic ACW (with exceptions).

Asbestos waste is any waste which contains more than 0.1% w/w asbestos. It is subject to the waste management controls set out in the Hazardous Waste (England & Wales) Regulations 2005 that amended the ‘Special Waste Regulations’.


The majority of buildings built prior to 1985 and a considerable number of buildings constructed between 1985 and 2000 contain asbestos. It is recommended that the majority of ACMs should not be removed / disposed of by unlicensed persons or companies and should only be removed / disposed of by licensed companies like ourselves.
