Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in the construction industry due to its heat-resistant and insulating properties. However, the use of asbestos was banned in the UK in 1999 due to the health risks associated with exposure to asbestos fibres. Asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis, can take decades to develop and there is no known cure. Therefore, it is extremely important to handle, dispose and recycle asbestos safely and responsibly.
If you have a shed or garage that contains asbestos sheets, it is important to take the necessary precautions to ensure that you and others around you are not at risk of exposure.

Asbestos handling and disposal must be done with a lot of care, as the dust and fibres released can be dangerous to your health. Therefore, it is essential to follow the correct procedures and guidelines.
When handling asbestos sheets, it is important to wear the correct protective gear, such as disposable coveralls, gloves, and a respiratory mask. You should also wet the sheets with water to minimise the risk of fibres being released into the air during handling.
When disposing of asbestos sheets, the first thing you should do is contact your local authorities to find out their regulations on disposing of hazardous waste. In Hampshire, you can contact your local council or visit the Hampshire County Council website to find out where your nearest waste disposal site is.
