You need to complete an application for each load of asbestos you wish to dispose of, and submit it to council no later than 48 hours before the date you are planning to dispose of the asbestos. An asbestos disposal guideline is included with the application form.

Complete the application form:

Quantities over 250 kilograms are considered commercial and require a waste tracking certificate. Contact council's customer service centre for details.

Please note: Asbestos removal is extremely hazardous and council strongly recommends that do-it-yourself renovators use a licensed operator to carry out the removal to avoid long-term health risks to themselves or future occupants.

More information about asbestos is available on the Queensland Health website.
