Any material containing asbestos fibre presents a potential risk to health and accordingly should be treated with great care.This risk increases considerably if the material becomes damaged or is disturbed, and where fibres are then released into the atmosphere.
In order to reduce risk you must prevent fibre release by:
- Repairing damaged Asbestos cement
- Suitably sealing dusty or deteriorating surfaces
- Enclosing the Asbestos cement material
- Removing and disposing of the Asbestos cement material
You can dispose of asbestos by using a private licensed asbestos removal contractor or carrying out the work yourself.
In this case you will need to make an appointment to deliver the prepared waste to the Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA). This is a disposal service available to Merseyside residents with cement bonded asbestos products only.
