We are making some updates to our online forms on the morning of Thursday, October 24. Some forms will be unavailable but will be back soon. Sorry for any inconvenience.


We do not have to collect asbestos but we know you might have to get rid of small amounts sometimes. 

You can take asbestos to the tip in Burslem:

  • It must have come from your home
  • You must live in the city 
  • Two red council bags only 
  • Cement-bonded asbestos sheeting 
  • Guttering and downspouts 
  • Flues 

You will need to:

  • Complete a disclaimer form at the Burslem site and collect two red asbestos bags.
  • Put the asbestos in the red bags provided by us and seal them - we will accept a maximum of 2 bags.

If you have more than two red bags worth of asbestos you must arrange a specialist waste company to collect and get rid of it.
