Household Asbestos Removal 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.


FREE Household Asbestos Removal Program

Fairfield City Council offers residents free collections of asbestos materials twice a year in March and November.

The asbestos must be bonded/non-friable, detached from your property and a maximum of 10 square metres.

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

Registrations are required as places are limited.

Please contact the Waste and Sustainability team on 9725 0222 for more information.
