For more information on asbestos visit the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website.
The information on the HSE website will be of particular interest to employers, asbestos contractors and others with duties under asbestos regulations, together with those workers currently at greatest risk from exposure to asbestos.
Essex County Council recycling centres cannot accept asbestos or hazardous waste of any description. However, you can make a request for bonded asbestos (asbestos cement) to be collected and disposed of by Essex County Council. They will provide a subsidy on collection costs per household per financial year, which will be deducted from your bill before payment if you qualify for the subsidy.
