Removing and disposing

Householders may carry out minor repairs on asbestos cement materials, as long as the recommended safety precautions for these activities are followed.

However, some jobs are best left to the experts. If you are considering a renovation that involves disturbing large amounts of asbestos cement materials, removing friable asbestos products, or demolition of all or part of your property, don’t do this work yourself. Engage a licensed asbestos removalist who knows how to manage this work safely, and without risk to you or your neighbours.

Friable asbestos material should be removed only by a licensed asbestos removalist.

You can use the service provider directory to find a licensed asbestos removalist in your area.
