Businesses and individuals often pose the question; where can I go for asbestos disposal near me?
Asbestos waste is hazardous and requires special processing, which means businesses, tradespeople and waste contractors are extremely limited as to where they can go to safely and legally dispose of their asbestos waste.
There are a handful of landfill sites in the counties that surround Dorset, which can accept asbestos waste but they all have different acceptance conditions and are only really geared for larger lorries.
The availability of local landfills accepting asbestos waste will be further reduced when Pound Bottom Landfill is closed on the 31/01/2018.
If I can’t use a landfill, where can I go?
Now we have established that in most cases landfill sites don’t offer a suitable answer to the question of ‘asbestos disposal near me?’. It seems fitting to introduce Canford Recycling Centre, a fully licensed facility in Wimborne, Dorset, that can accept asbestos waste.
Asbestos disposal at Canford Recycling Centre
To dispose of asbestos waste at Canford Recycling Centre, businesses and individuals must ensure their waste is double wrapped, pre-booked in for tipping and accompanied by a hazardous waste consignment note.
For further information see our article ‘How to dispose of asbestos waste in Poole and Bournemouth’. Or alternatively, please call one of our friendly experts on 01202 331560.
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.
