Disposing of asbestos

Asbestos should be dampened, double wrapped in builder's plastic and sealed before taking to a waste facility for disposal. It must remain sealed after unloading at the facility. Asbestos from domestic customers only can be received at the Greater Toowoomba Waste Management Facility, Goombungee, Jondaryan, Yarraman, Millmerran and Pittsworth waste facilities.

You MUST contact council before taking asbestos to any of these waste facilities.

As of 1 November 2016 Council cannot accept asbestos from commercial customers. See Waste facility projects - asbestos acceptance for details on commercial disposal.
