Asbestos collections (paid for service)

There is a charge to use this service. From 3 April 2017, the price is £189.75 + vat (£227.70 per collection) per load, with a maximum collection of one tonne, plus a treatment fee of £12.20 per sheet or equivalent sack of asbestos or asbestos containing material (ACM).

A load (up to 1 tonne) approximately equates to 30 sheets of 6ft x 3ft (1.83m x 0.91m) or up to eight storage heaters.

Our contractor Viridor will collect your asbestos within 10 working days of payment being received. Please ensure the asbestos is easily accessible outside your property, having been appropriately wrapped or double bagged. Do not break up the asbestos and leave sheets whole.

We are unable to arrange collection of commercial or trade asbestos. If you have commercial asbestos or a large amount for disposal, contact the Asbestos Removal Contractors Association or arrange collections with a commercial waste management company (a list of registered carriers can be obtained from the Gov.UK website).

Asbestos can be harmful and should be treated carefully.  Do not place asbestos into your wheeled bin nor put out for kerbside refuse collections.

Some recycling sites are able to accept asbestos.

If you can safely transport the asbestos (having paid and appropriately wrapped or bagged it), there are dedicated containers at Bridgwater, Frome, Highbridge, Minehead, Street, Taunton and Yeovil recycling sites. Also see page on asbestos disposal for safety guidance on handling and preparing asbestos prior to taking for disposal.
