Managing and disposing of asbestos safely
If you think you have found asbestos, either at home or at work, it is important you deal with it carefully.
Many people have worries about asbestos, but undisturbed asbestos usually poses no problems.
However, care should be taken to prevent the release of fibres as they can cause serious damage to your health.
More information about asbestos is available via the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
West Berkshire residents can arrange an appointment for disposal of cement-bonded asbestos using our free Newtown Road facility in Newbury.
