Where to dispose of asbestos waste in Rochdale

Where to dispose of asbestos waste in Rochdale

Are you wondering where to dispose of asbestos waste in Rochdale?

Perhaps you have dismantled a shed or garage at home that contains asbestos cement, or you have been doing some home renovations involving removing asbestos.

Some examples of where asbestos cement bonded materials may be used in the home are on garage/shed roofs, on shed/garage wall panels, drain pipes, insulation boards, soffits, insulation panels, partitions and even bath side panels.

Asbestos is classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of in the correct manner.

It cannot be disposed of along with regular household waste.

Asbestos cement waste must firstly be double wrapped in heavy duty polythene sheets, bags or sacks, sealed securely and clearly labelled with the contents.

You can find more information and guidance on disposing of asbestos waste here on the HSE website.

It is recommended that the asbestos waste be transported in a trailer or even a van if possible so that it can be rinsed out afterwards with water.

You can take the asbestos waste to many different waste recycling centres within the Greater Manchester area that have a weighbridge.

You do not need a license to remove or dispose of any household asbestos cement.

However, any other asbestos containing materials must be removed by a licensed contractor who will have to pay to dispose of the asbestos waste.

Tradesmen or builders cannot take asbestos waste to a recycling centre, as it is against the law and they will be prosecuted for doing so.

Instead, there are many private waste disposal companies that can come and collect the asbestos waste from residential or commercial premises and dispose of it at a licensed site/transfer station.

One local company that can do this for the trade are Wheeldon Brothers.
