Asbestos Management

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).

Asbestos Disposal

West Berkshire residents can arrange an appointment for disposal of cement-bonded asbestos using our free Newtown Road facility in Newbury.
Before making an appointment, please read our doc icon Terms and Conditions for Asbestos Disposal [27kb].

Wokingham Borough Council residents should contact Waste Services via the Wokingham Borough Council website.
