Asbestos

​Identifying asbestos

If you think you have materials that may contain asbestos, you will have to arrange to have these tested by a professional.

You can find a list of accredited asbestos testing services by visiting the IANZ website directory and searching "asbestos". This will help you decide how to handle the materials.

We do not provide an asbestos testing service.

Disposing of asbestos

To dispose of asbestos, contact a professional asbestos removal company. The Worksafe website has a list of certified asbestos removers.

Transfer stations in Auckland do not accept asbestos.

Our staff and contractors will not pick up items they suspect may contain asbestos. This includes items that you place out for the inorganics collection.

Asbestos regulations
