This does not include asbestos produced from work carried out by a trader. In these instances, it is the legal responsibility of the trader to remove the waste.
If you need to remove asbestos from your home, you can buy specialist bags from Wolverhampton Homes Ltd who will collect and dispose of the material at an appropriately licensed disposal facility.
Removing asbestos yourself
For safety, it is important to thoroughly read the guidance booklet provided with the bags before removing any asbestos waste.
The asbestos must be double bagged and completely sealed with no gaps to prevent the risk of fibres escaping. The bagged waste must also be a suitable weight and size for the collection staff to be able to lift (no more than 20kg in weight).
Bag sizes are 118 cm (height) by 88 cm (width).
Further advice on working with asbestos safely can be read on the Health and Safety Executive website or call 0845 345 0055.
