I have carefully removed the 9"x7" asbestos iron stand from an old ironing board and would now like to dispose of it responsibly. I was amazed when I rang the local Council to find that although they do dispose of asbestos they want £40 for doing so. Seems a bit expensive to me, especially for such a small piece. Do I just pay up?
Thanks Builder for your kind response. The local recycling depots don't accept asbestos at all and when I rang the council I offered to bring the asbestos to them but it is still a flat-rate charge of £40 to dispose of it. Tempting to just stick it in the bin but of course I won't do that! I'll maybe just have to go further afield to find somewhere willing to take it off my hands.
