If I am bringing the waste in, what do I need to know?

Asbestos waste is hazardous and therefore any individual bringing it to Canford Recycling Centre must ensure the following actions are completed.

  • All wastes must be double wrapped or bagged using a strong, 1000+ gauge plastic that can be sealed and has no holes.
  • The waste must be pre-booked in at least one day before being brought to Canford Recycling Centre.
  • A hazardous waste consignment note must be partially completed to enable it to be finished and signed when the load is tipped. *A member of our team can start this process once the load is pre-booked over the phone.

Please note asbestos waste disposed of at Canford Recycling Centre must be manually offloaded on site. Therefore we strongly recommend sheets of asbestos are individually wrapped and sealed bags of asbestos weigh no more than 25kg each.

What happens if I can’t or don’t want to transport the asbestos waste?
