Asbestos disposal

Our waste transfer station at Kirkstall provides a safe way for householders to dispose of asbestos by appointment only.

We provide a non-advice asbestos disposal service. We are unable to assist with any other asbestos related enquiries such as testing, surveys, inspections or removal.

We do not accept asbestos from trade or businesses. Householders from outside of the Leeds area are not allowed to use our asbestos disposal facilities.

On the day of your booked visit report to the weighbridge on entry to the site for inspection of your load. 

All asbestos must be double wrapped in strong polythene (minimum of 1000 gauge) and sealed with strong broad tape (for example duct tape). All loose edges and corners must be secure.

Failure to properly wrap and secure the asbestos in suitably strong polythene (minimum of 1000 gauge) will result in you being turned away from site.

For health and safety reasons, personal protective equipment (PPE) must be worn when disposing of your asbestos at our facilities. You must wear a high visibility jacket and protective footwear.

Staff will direct you to the asbestos container and request that you activate your hazard lights whilst on site.

Our staff will not be able to help you unload and dispose of your waste. For heavier items you may need to bring someone with you to help.

You can find out more information about asbestos on the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website external link.
