Asbestos, tyres and gas cylinders


Asbestos requires specialist processing and dealing with such a dangerous material at a public facility is difficult and expensive. From 1 April 2017, asbestos is no longer accepted at any recycling centre.

Before starting any work where asbestos may be present, consult local business directories to find a company licensed to remove and dispose of asbestos waste.  

Useful information and licensed contractors can be found by visiting the Health and Safety Executive website.

To search for a Cheshire based company, at the bottom of the page enter County in the search field and CHES in the second field. A list of asbestos licence holders within Cheshire will be displayed


Tyres need specialist recycling facilities so we do not accept tyres at any recycling centre.  Please contact a local tyre fitting company about disposal.

Gas cylinders

Gas cylinders are the property of the cylinder supplier and should be returned to them.
