Disposing of asbestos

Asbestos is not accepted in your kerbside collection or at any Essex County Council recycling centre.

How to dispose of asbestos

Essex residents can request a collection of bonded asbestos (asbestos cement), if the asbestos is from your own household. Please note, a subsidised collection is available for each household in Essex, every financial year.
