Please remember that Council will not collect asbestos if:
- It is more than 10 square meters in quantity.
- It was recently removed from a structure as part of a renovation.
To book a collection phone us on on 02 8757 9000.
Many homes in the Cumberland Council area built before 1990 will contain asbestos. This is a dangerous mineral that was added to many building materials because it helped to strengthen them, as well as provide other benefits including improved insulation and heat-resistance.
Asbestos poses a risk to your health if the tiny fibres are inhaled so keep your home well maintained and managing risk during home renovations is essential.
