Asbestos Waste Disposal
Merryhill operates a licensed waste transfer station for the disposal of asbestos waste.
As a hazardous material, asbestos has to be disposed of in accordance with regulations. These apply to both domestic and commercial clients.
Asbestos was a widely used building material used extensively in the UK from before 1900, up until the year 2000 when it was eventually banned. Most asbestos materials remain safe so long as they are not removed or disturbed without necessary precautions.
Should a material need to be removed, then the first thing to do is ensure the material non-licensed. By that, we mean an asbestos license is not required to remove the material. Non-licensed materials include items such as floor tiles, textured coatings, asbestos cement, bitumen products and small items such as pipe / flange gaskets.
Are you a building contractor carrying out non-licensed work on behalf of your client? If so, we offer competitive disposal rates for for asbestos cement, floor tiles, plasterboard or plaster containing textured coatings (Artex).
All asbestos disposed at our site will be done under consignment note which you can keep for your records. This standard document from the Environment Agency means
If you’re a licensed waste carrier then you can bring any asbestos-containing materials to our depot for disposal.
If you do not hold a license, then we can collect from site for an additional fee. Please let us know where the site is before booking a collection.

Have you removed some asbestos materials from your own home yourself? Need somewhere to dispose of the items?
In Hampshire, there are only a few council-run sites where materials can be disposed. Typically, these sites will only take asbestos cement, and the sheets will need to be smaller than 1200 x 600mm (approx. 4ft x 2ft).
Asbestos cement sheeting is typically larger than this, especially for larger structures like asbestos garages where the roof sheets can be around 3 metres (10ft) long!
If you are in any doubt about a material or need some advice, then please get in touch to discuss. Licensed materials should always be removed by a licensed asbestos removal contractor (like us). Licensed (more dangerous) materials include insulation board, thermal insulation and sprayed coatings.
