Asbestos Disposal

Disturbed asbestos materials can release tiny asbestos fibers into the air. People who breathe in asbestos fibers are at risk of developing asbestos-related diseases, like lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma. For information on asbestos disposal,  see resources from the California Department of Toxic Substances Control

Please note that while asbestos is hazardous, it is not accepted at our Household Hazardous Waste facilities. Instead, follow guidelines set out by the state to safely dispose of asbestos. 


If you have non-friable asbestos to dispose of, hire a registered asbestos contractor or call one of our local landfills. Follow their instructions and make arrangements to safely drop it off. Always call ahead to the landfill before taking in asbestos. If you are unsure if you have asbestos or need help handling it, contact a registered asbestos contractor, who can test it and pick it up for you.
