Asbestos is best known for its use as insulation and as a building material found in many older properties across the country. Asbestos is classed as a hazardous material and can only be disposed of at certain locations in Australia.
Asbestos should never be put in your recycling or waste bin. Asbestos is toxic and should always be handled by a licensed professional. If you are unsure about the presence of asbestos on a site for renovation, construction or demolition, organise a licensed professional to inspect the site and safely manage the disposal of any asbestos found.
