​​​​​​Asbestos is not a risk if it is in good condition and is not disturbed. 

When asbestos materials age or become damaged i.e. when drilled, sawn, scrubbed or sanded, they can release toxic fibres into the air.

The Health and Safety Executive​​​​​​​​​​​External link opens in a new window explains what to look out for.

Asbestos should not be placed in your garden/food/recycling and general waste.​

Disposing of asbestos

We can provide a convenient, and free kerbside collection for small amounts of asbestos. 

Your asbestos will need to fit into 1 asbestos sack, measuring 1150 mm x 870 mm. 

We will deliver an asbestos sack to your property. We will also deliver a clear bag. You will need to put your asbestos sack inside the clear bag, so that it is double bagged.

You will be contacted by our asbestos contractor, and told when to put your sack on the kerbside for collection.

If you need an asbestos sack please use the online request form​.​

If you have an amount of asbestos that will not fit in 1 asbestos sack, you will need to use a licenced company. Read more information about licenced asbestos removal.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​External link opens in a new window

Council homes

We monitor and manage asbestos in council homes to make sure it is safe. All asbestos containing material in good condition will remain in place and its condition will be reviewed regularly. If the material is damaged or is a high risk due to its location we will take immediate action to have it removed.


If you think there may be damaged asbestos in your council home, or if you are thinking of carrying out home improvements that might disturb asbestos containing material, you must contact us or call 029 2087 2087.​

If you carry out any work or allow others to carry out work without written approval, you will be liable for any costs of dealing with any asbestos incidents. 

Please remember that changes to the structure or the fabric of the property, without prior approval in writing, are not permitted under your tenancy agreement.

Please provide your name, address, email address and telephone number in the online request form.​
