Asbestos in your home

If you have asbestos in your home or garden

If you suspect asbestos in your home or garden, the condition and risk will need to be assessed by an experienced, trained surveyor.

The asbestos may be safe to leave and monitor, however, damaged asbestos with visible fibres will need to be made safe or removed completely.

Disposing of asbestos

There is a skip at Middlefields Depot where we can accept asbestos, only if it has come from your own domestic property.

To use the skip, you must arrange a time to deliver the waste. To do this, call 0191 427 7000.

The skip is available Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm, and Saturday from 8am to 11.30am. 

Please be aware, there are guidelines and laws associated with working with asbestos. For information, go to Health and Safety Executive: Asbestos essentials and Health and Safety Executive: Carriage of asbestos.
