Asbestos safety

Be safe with your renovation waste

Just a reminder that to protect the health and safety of our customers and workers, all waste loads of cement sheeting, fibro, renovation waste and tiles are being routinely inspected at our mainland waste transfer stations for materials that could contain asbestos. If in any doubt, our gate staff will treat renovation/building materials as containing asbestos.

Asbestos can be found in lots of old building materials, and can be very hard to identify. You can only dispose of material containing asbestos at Birkdale Waste Transfer Station – not Redland
Bay, and only under strict conditions. It needs to be less than 10m2, double-wrapped and sealed in
durable, thick plastic sheeting (builders’ plastic). Commercial operators will also need to pay the
asbestos disposal fee.

For more information about asbestos and its safe removal and disposal, visit our website.
