Contact the landfill before you transport asbestos

Some landfills only accept small household amounts of domestic asbestos. Some landfills only accept commercial asbestos. Others will accept both. 

Always contact the landfill before you deliver asbestos. Although we have licensed several landfills (listed below) to accept asbestos, they can still choose not to accept it. Or, the landfill might require you to book ahead and make a time, so their staff are ready to store your asbestos waste safely.

 

Before you transport your waste, call the landfill to check they still accept asbestos

 

Domestic asbestos waste

Domestic asbestos landfills will only accept small household amounts. For example, if you have renovated a bathroom and you find some asbestos sheeting that you want to dispose of.

Your asbestos waste is considered 'domestic' if:

  1. the asbestos is from your household
  2. you are transporting it in your own vehicle
  3. you are taking it to a landfill licensed to accept domestic asbestos.

If you meet all 3 criteria, then you do not need a waste transport certificate. Review our list of domestic asbestos landfills currently accepting waste, or contact your local council. 

How to package domestic asbestos waste

Domestic asbestos must be packaged in the right way. Landfills will not accept incorrectly packaged asbestos. 

To learn more, read Asbestos Victoria's guidance on packaging domestic asbestos

Where to take domestic asbestos waste

If you are disposing of your own domestic asbestos waste, you can only take it to a domestic asbestos landfill

If you have contractors removing asbestos from your home, they can take it to a commercial asbestos landfill, but the contractor must hold a waste transport certificate.

Commercial asbestos waste

Commercial asbestos comes from industrial or commercial sources. For example, building sites or businesses.  

Landfills classified as commercial can only accept asbestos that have come from commercial or industrial sources. The asbestos can be in large or small amounts. 

How to transport commercial asbestos waste

You can only transport commercial asbestos waste if:

  1. you have a waste transport certificate
  2. you are taking it to a landfill licensed to accept commercial asbestos (or licensed for both commercial and domestic)
  3. you deliver the asbestos in a permitted vehicle.

Licensed landfills accepting asbestos waste

Some landfills may have been impacted by the recent floods and might not be able to accept your waste. Please call the landfill first, just to be sure.
