Willoughby City Council is trialling a Householders’ Asbestos Removal Scheme, funded by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA).
The waste levy and tip fees for the disposal of asbestos will be waived from 31 July 2014 for 12 months, or until 5,000 tonnes of asbestos is collected.
Asbestos must be removed by a council approved contractor.
Other partners to the program are Kogarah City Council, Rockdale City Council, Sutherland Shire Council and Hurstville City Council.
Contractors can be booked by going to http://www.willoughby.nsw.gov.au/Development/asbestos/household-asbestos-removal-program/.
