Disposal of Asbestos

The removal of asbestos containing materials from homes and workplaces has different obligations under different laws. The removal should only be done with specific care to avoid the release of asbestos fibers into the air.

Home renovators and owner-builders must hold a certificate obtained under arrangements approved or established by Queensland Health to remove more than 10 square meters of non-friable (also known as bonded) asbestos materials

For further information view the Queensland Government's website or contact 13 QGOV (137468).
  
For disposal of asbestos at Council's landfill sites, please contact Council's Waste Management Coordinator on (07) 4945 0256.
