What is asbestos?
Until the mid-1980s, asbestos was widely used in a range of home building materials. If your dwelling was built or renovated before 1987, it is likely you have an asbestos problem to be professionally dealt with.
Asbestos is a dangerous and lethal health hazard and strict laws were introduced in recent years for its safe removal to avoid immediate danger to the surrounding community and environment.
Developers and the public need to understand the danger of asbestos and what precautions you must take if you are planning to demolish, renovate or make repairs to an asbestos site.
What do I do to remove it?
Removing asbestos is a dangerous and complicated process best carried out by professionals who are licensed, insured, experienced and have completed the required stringent training.
Strict Government rules apply to handling and disposing of asbestos. An unqualified person CANNOT remove more than 10 square meters of asbestos. It is illegal to put asbestos in a household garbage bin or to dump it. You cannot take asbestos to a local waste disposal depot. It is illegal to dump asbestos anywhere.
