Removal

A NSW Workcover licence is required to remove more than 10 square metres (100kg) of bonded asbestos and any amount of friable asbestos.

The Department of Health, SafeWork NSW and the Asbestos Awareness website have some comprehensive information on the safe handling and removal of asbestos.

  • All asbestos deliveries to the Waste Management Centre must be booked 24 hours in advance by calling 02 4934 1888.
  • Any asbestos loads (including asbestos contaminated soil) exceeding 100kg or 10 square metres must be registered using the NSW EPA's Waste Locate system by:
