Waste asbestos is accepted at all household waste recycling centres in Kent with the exception of the Sheerness site.

No more than 5 sacks (or equivalent) per month.

The asbestos must be:

  • double bagged or wrapped in heavy duty plastic sheeting, and secured with tape
  • not sticking out from the packaging
  • no more than 10 feet (3 metres) x 5 feet (1.5 metres)
  • kept damp.

Wear protective gloves and a face mask and do not break or cut it.

The asbestos container is kept locked for health and safety reasons. Please ask a member of staff on site to unlock the container for you. They will not be able to help you lift the asbestos.

For large quantities, or if you need someone to collect the asbestos, contact the Asbestos Removal Contractors Association for a company near you.
