The ill-prepared removal and illegal dumping of asbestos waste from renovations poses a significant public health challenge for communites and governments.

Domestic asbestos is accepted at the Benalla Landfill. There will be an asbestos limit of 500kg per customer and only from domestic sources and to be arranged into 20kg-30kg lots. Pieces in those packs need to be 1m x 1m in size. These packs need to be double wrapped in black plastic and taped up with asbestos clearly labeled on the outside.

Please call the Benalla Landfill, on (03) 5760 2600, 24 hours before disposal to make an appointment.

A website ( recently released by WorkSafe Victoria, the Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) and the Department of Health contains useful information regarding information to help homeowners, tenants, employers and workers understand the risks of asbestos, how to comply with your duties, and resources for managing and removing asbestos in homes and workplaces.

Detox Your Home - Household Chemical Collection
