Acceptance and Disposal

Only the Lake Grace Tip can accept asbestos. Asbestos dumping is illegal in all other tips in the Shire. Please download and complete the Asbestos Disposal Application form below and then submit to the Shire by hand or by email.

Due to dwindling space, asbestos will only be considered for acceptance if the Shire is notified beforehand to ensure there is sufficient room for disposal and cover of asbestos. Requests to dispose of asbestos received at the office reception without prior notice will be rejected.

The Lake Grace Tip is currently   unable  to accept asbestos. (updated at 27/03/2023)

Disposers/carriers are responsible for unloading the asbestos themselves and should not expect help from Shire staff unless prior arrangement is made. Afterwards, an invoice will be sent to the business identified on the Asbestos Disposal Application form at the rate specified in the current Fees & Charges.

For further information, please contact the Shire of Lake Grace on (08) 9890 2500 or shire@lakegrace.wa.gov.au.
