asbestosThe Rockhampton Regional Council is imploring residents to be more cautious after asbestos was supposedly improperly dumped at a council site.

The council found suspected asbestos improperly dumped at a bin station, approximately six times in one week.

Councillor Neil Fisher believes the  quantity hints that the material is from a building site.

“Either a home renovator or a builder that are taking off fibro sheet or asbestos cement sheet off a building site but rather than going to Rockhampton landfill and disposing of them appropriately, what’s happening is they’re actually coming in and just dumping them straight on the ground in the bin station,” he said.

He says people unsure should speak to refer to the council’s waste disposal staff

“If you’ve got a query and you’re not quite sure if that material that you’re taking to the dump could be suspected of being asbestos or not, just enquire at the waste station,” he said.

“The council staff are very, very helpful and will give you the advice that you need.”
