If your house was built before 1990, there’s a good chance it contains asbestos somewhere. Common places you might find asbestos include walls, roofs and eaves, vinyl tiling, drains and oven or heating flues.
Visit the Asbestos in NSW website to learn more and get tips on how to protect yourself.
The Asbestos Awareness website also has great resources to help you understand the risks of this material.
Handling and disposing of asbestos
Strict rules apply to handling and disposing of asbestos. If you’re removing more than 10 square meters of asbestos, you must use a licensed asbestos removalist.
See the NSW EPA website for more information about dealing with asbestos waste.
It is illegal to put asbestos in a household garbage bin or to dump it.
You cannot take asbestos to our waste disposal depot.
