When Asbestos is disturbed, it produces a dust that contains asbestos fibres. Fibres breathed into the lungs can cause a range of health problems.

The Albury Waste Management Centre (AWMC) is licensed to accept asbestos that has been removed and packed in accordance with legislative requirements.

To ensure the safety of all Albury Waste Management Centre users and the environment, it is essential to declare asbestos waste either on entry or prior to arrival.

Transporting Asbestos within NSW and interstate

Commercial Purposes

Asbestos transporters must report the movement of asbestos waste to the Environment Protection Authority (EPA). To help industry meet its legal obligations, the EPA has developed a new Integrated Waste Tracking Solution (IWTS) for tracking and reporting on hazardous and regulated waste.

If you’re involved with the transport or disposal of asbestos waste weighing more than 100 kilograms, or more than 10 square metres of asbestos sheeting in 1 load in NSW, you must track and report this waste to the EPA using the new IWTS.

Weather inhibits asbestos disposal, where wet conditions are present please contact 02 6043 5860 to seek disposal approval.

The IWTS generates a unique EPA consignment ID that allows each load to be monitored from the place of generation to the site of disposal. If you are planning on disposing of this waste at the AWMC, you will need to present this consignment ID upon entry. Persons without consignment ID will not be able to enter the site.

For more information on the IWTS system, refer to NSW EPAs website.

Commercial asbestos disposals will only be accepted during business hours between Monday and Fridays unless otherwise authorised.

Residential Purposes

Council will only accept less than 100 kilograms of asbestos waste material from residents. All asbestos receivals need to comply with the triple wrapping requirements. Loads exceeding this volume are to be managed by an experienced asbestos removalist. The resident will be responsible for removing asbestos from their vehicles and placing in an area whereby onsite staff can pick up the package using bucket and loader machinery.

For any questions, please contact 02 6043 5860.

Asbestos disposals will be accepted during business hours between Monday and Sunday.
