Asbestos is a hazardous waste that must be disposed of correctly
Asbestos waste can only be disposed of at approved waste disposal sites and incorrect disposal can result in fines or prosecution. There are specific requirements under the Asbestos Code of Practice that should be followed in terms of the containment and transportation of asbestos waste. When you are handling asbestos, you need to follow basic health and safety protocols.
Some asbestos containing materials are best handled by experienced and licensed removalists. If the material is large in volume or requires removal from a site, building or from plant or equipment, we would recommend engaging our services to manage the entire process on your behalf.
Our Asbestos Collection Service
ATL will no longer accept asbestos drop-offs at our warehouse in East Tamaki.
Alternatively, we are offering a collection service for the Auckland Region from Albany to Pukekohe, Kumeu to Maraetai.
- Purchase and collect a Hazibag from our premises or get it sent to you by courier. We would also highly recommend purchasing a PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Kit to ensure the health and safety of not only yourself but also others around you.
- Complete your removal works, ensuring that you are aware of your responsibilities as an asbestos removalist, as set out here by WorkSafe NZ.
- Get your hazibag collected by ATL.
- Pay a set price/kg for any asbestos collected and pay a final invoice (within 7 days)
You can also opt to not purchase a hazibag and double wrap the asbestos waste yourself. All waste, including disposable (single-use) masks and coveralls, cloths and plastic sheets should be double-bagged in heavy-duty plastic bags. Twist the top of the bags tightly, fold the necks over (a ‘gooseneck twist’) and seal with adhesive tape so that the contents are fully enclosed. Clearly mark the outer bag as asbestos waste.
If the waste that requires picking up is not correctly wrapped there will be an extra charge for materials and labour.
