Asbestos Disposal

Asbestos can only be disposed of at the Dunsborough Waste Facility, Vidler Road, Dunsborough from Monday to Friday between the hours of 8.00am & 2.30pm.

Large quantities must be triple wrapped in heavy duty black plastic and labelled ASBESTOS and must be on a pallet (not on gluts) so that it can be unloaded by the waste facility loader.

Small quantities which can be unloaded by hand do not have to be on a pallet, however they must be triple wrapped in heavy duty black plastic and labelled ASBESTOS.

Loads not complying with these requirements will be rejected at the discretion of the leading hand.

Please phone the waste facility to give at least half an hour’s notice to advise that asbestos will be arriving which needs to be unloaded.  (Small quantities may be accepted without notice, at the discretion of the leading hand.)
