How should I dispose of asbestos?

Asbestos needs to be disposed of at Council’s Kirknie Landfill and should be removed and transported by a specialist asbestos waste removalist.  The Department of Justice and Attorney-General (Workplace Health and Safety Qld) web site provides information for home owners, renovators and owner builders on asbestos in the home.
