Residential loads (of up to 10m²) of waste containing or potentially containing harmful asbestos can be safely disposed of at Mudgee Waste Facility for FREE. Bookings must be made no later than 24 hours prior to disposal date.

Transport vehicles must ensure asbestos waste is correctly wrapped to ensure no asbestos fibres can escape and is properly secured. Appropriate clothing, footwear and personal protective equipment must be worn. 

Bonded asbestos greater than 10m² and/or all friable asbestos can only be removed by a licensed contractor. NSW WasteLocate must be used – visit www.wastelocate.epa.nsw.gov.au for more information.
