Cement Bonded Asbestos
Only cement bonded asbestos is accepted and this is by appointment only.
Breathing asbestos fibres can cause very serious and long term health issues. We recommend that any asbestos containing materials should only be removed by professional and licenced asbestos removers. Any asbestos sheeting or similar should not be broken or damaged. To reduce the spread of dust and fibres the asbestos should always be fully dampened before handling.
Avoid breaking any sheeting or similar before wrapping or bagging. Protective clothing and a suitable face mask (respirator) should be worn at all times.
If in any doubt, always seek specialist advice and guidance before commencing any work with materials that may contain asbestos.
Double wrapping only
The cement bonded asbestos must be completely enclosed by double wrapping and sealing in heavy duty polythene sheets or sacks. Bin bags are not strong enough for this.
How to bring asbestos for disposal
We will only accept sheets of bonded asbestos from residents, for which there is a charge. Asbestos waste from business customers is not accepted. You must call us on 020 8965 5497 to make an appointment to bring the asbestos to site in Brent. When you bring asbestos you will be directed to the unloading area where you must carefully unload it without damaging the wrapping and place it in the container provided. You must comply with the instructions of our site staff at all times. Note: If you do not arrive at your appointed time your asbestos many not be accepted.
You must live in the London boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow or Richmond if you wish to dispose of asbestos. Any resident who brings asbestos must produce two forms of identification from the list below which must be in their own name and show their home address. If you cannot provide suitable ID you will be asked to leave without depositing your waste.
- Current/valid photo ID from a recognised agency (i.e. Passport, UK Photo Card Driving Licence, UK Government ID card or similar); and
- A recent utility bill (no more than 4 months old and please note that mobile phone bills are not acceptable) or your current council tax bill. Whatever is produced must show your current home address, the one where the asbestos waste you’re bringing comes from.
Please note – WLWA’s decision about what forms of ID are suitable is final, no vans or trailers are accepted on the site and the decision of the site staff is final.
The charges for asbestos are £272 per tonne with a minimum charge of £54.40 for weights up to 200kg. Your vehicle will be weighed on-site before and after unloading. The table below gives an indication of how much you’ll pay at certain weights.
