Asbestos disposal

Please note that from 3rd June 2019 we will no longer accept asbestos for disposal.

We operate four disposal sites which are licensed to accept cement bonded asbestos.

We only accept asbestos from domestic properties in Aberdeenshire. Tradesmen wishing to dispose of asbestos should contact a specialist waste disposal company. These are listed in Yellow Pages under "Asbestos Removal".

The disposal is free of charge. However, we can only accept a maximum of ten sheets per household.

The householder must present the asbestos in person. We will ask you to provide proof of residency. For example, a recent utility bill or driving licence.

Preparing asbestos for disposal

Asbestos must be double bagged or wrapped in strong plastic (preferably clear) and sealed. You can buy plastic from builders merchants and DIY stores.

It is not necessary to obtain a consignment note from your local SEPA (Scottish Environmental Protection Agency) office for asbestos from domestic properties.

Asbestos disposal sites

Please contact your local site in advance to arrange a time and date for disposal. 

The sites accept disposals only on Wednesday between 9am and 12 noon.
