 The NSW Environment Protection Agency (EPA) has committed $3 million to trialling a Householders' Asbestos Removal Scheme, specifically targeting wrapped, bonded asbestos. For more information on bonded asbestos click pdf icon Workcover Bonded Asbestos Fact sheet (877.69kB).

Hurstville City Council is partnering with Kogarah City Council, Rockdale City Council, Sutherland Shire Council and Willoughby City Council to promote this scheme that removes the waste levy on the disposal of asbestos.

From 31st July 2014 residents will have the opportunity to dispose of wrapped, bonded asbestos at a discounted rate. Residents should note this is not a free service for the removal and disposal of asbestos.
