If you need to arrange for asbestos to be disposed of, then your local authority will normally have guidelines of what to do with it. Some councils will collect some forms of asbestos, such as cement containing the substance.

If you are yet to have the asbestos removed from your property, you can get a quote from a professional contractor on the right.

Some councils also provide guidance on how to remove asbestos if you wish to do it yourself, however the health risks if you don’t know what you are doing or do not have the correct equipment will often outweigh the cost saving. Always be sure you understand the risks and take the required precautions before disturbing asbestos.
