How do I dispose of asbestos?
You can hire a licensed, specialist company to remove and/or dispose of the asbestos for you. Such companies advertise locally or in the yellow pages. Please ensure you use a reputable company who will dispose of the waste correctly.
Alternatively small amounts of household asbestos can be taken to the Waste Transfer Station on the Brackmills Industrial Estate in Northampton. A charge may be made. You will need to telephone the Waste Transfer Station on 0121 333 2118 to arrange a disposal time.
Please note that this scheme is only for asbestos from your home and not for trade waste.
More information about the scheme including prices can be found on the Northamptonshire County Council website.
Asbestos is not accepted at the Household Waste Recycling Centres.
