New local government guide for asbestos disposal

Local governments can access a new guide to help prevent and address illegal asbestos disposal. 

Developed by the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency (ASEA), the guide has been developed to help councils both manage and control the risks from illegal asbestos disposal. 

It provides practical examples of actions councils can take to prevent illegal asbestos disposal, based on best practice case studies from local councils.  

The ASEA says every action taken at a local level is a positive step in ensuring the health and safety of council workers and the community.
