Safe disposal of Asbestos
You are responsible for disposing of asbestos in a safe and responsible manner. If you have cement bonded asbestos from your home to dispose of there are two ways to dispose of it safely.
- use the collection service provided by the City of London Corporation, on behalf of Haringey Council
- use a licensed private contractor.
If you have any other type of asbestos to dispose of or the asbestos is from a business please use a licensed private contractor. More information can be found using the links contained on this page.
Use the collection service provided by the City of London Corporation, on behalf of Haringey Council
The Hazardous Waste Collection and Disposal Service will collect hazardous waste for disposal providing it does not amount to more than 11.5 square metres (125 square feet). Asbestos must be wrapped in either heavy duty builders' rubble bags or heavy gauge polythene sheeting.
To arrange a collection call the City of London Corporation on 020 7332 3433. You will need to tell them:
- the name of the London Borough you live in
- your full name, address and telephone number
- details of the items to be collected.
You can have one free collection of asbestos each year but this is dependent on the quantity.
For further information phone the City of London Corporation on 020 7332 3433 or follow the link to the Corporation of London website in the external links section at the bottom of this page.
If you do not want to handle the asbestos yourself please use a licensed private contractor. You can obtain details of these from the Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA) or the Environment Agency (you can find links to their websites in the external links section below).
