Household Asbestos Removal Program

Household Asbestos Collection Program

A licensed contractor removes asbestos products from a home in Fairfield City.

Asbestos in the home

If your home was built or renovated before 1987 it will most likely contain asbestos.

Asbestos can be found in places such as the walls, ceilings and floors of kitchens, bathrooms, laundries, outdoor toilets, sheds and garages.

If sealed, left undisturbed and in good condition asbestos doesn't pose a health risk. However, if disturbed, fibres are released which can be inhaled and cause asbestos-related diseases.

Before you renovate your home, find out where asbestos could be and how to deal with it safely.

For more information about asbestos please visit the SafeWork NSW website.

Collections are carried out by licenced contractors who handle and dispose of the asbestos safely and correctly.

Registrations for March are now closed.

If you have registered for March, please email your asbestos photos to and quote your property address or booking number.

Registrations for November will be announced in October.
