Asbestos materials are often best left alone if in good condition and unlikely to get damaged.

Worried there may be asbestos in your home?

If you're worried there may be asbestos in your home, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) explains what to look out for.

Removing asbestos

Rochdale Borough Council doesn't carry out asbestos removal, sampling or analysis.

You can find specialist asbestos removal contractors by searching online. If you live in rented accommodation, please speak to your landlord.

Disposing of asbestos

Asbestos is a hazardous waste and must not be mixed with household waste. Do not put asbestos in your wheelie bin.

Report fly-tipped asbestos

Don't touch or attempt to remove fly-tipped asbestos yourself.

Please report it to us and we'll clear it away as soon as possible.
