Plans for asbestos disposal in Bristol is opposed by local MPs

The leader of the Bristol city council and two MPs have urged planners to listen to objections to the proposed asbestos disposal in Bristol.

Last July, an application to dispose of hazardous waste at Stowey Quarry was initially approved by Bath and North East Somerset Council. The decision was later quashed but an application has since been resubmitted by Oaktree Environmental.

Opponents fear asbestos may get into Chew Valley reservoir and the Environment Agency have said that they would be objecting to the plans.

Peterborough City Council approve asbestos disposal in local quarry

A waste disposal company has received unanimous approval from a planning committee to allow them to dump asbestos at a landfill site near the town of Peterborough.

A well-known Waste Services company had originally applied for asbestos disposal waste within four “non hazardous” cells at Eyebury Quarry and to increase the catchment area for it to accept more asbestos disposal.

Peterborough City Council’s planning committee permitted the application, which will see a maximum of 200,000 tonnes of the waste dumped at the site over the next 10 years.

Disposal of asbestos; how not to do it…

Everyone knows fly tipping can cost a lot for the general tax payer to clean up. Its estimated to cost over £100,000’s a day to clear up, all because some people don’t want to pay for disposal of their waste correctly.


Take this guy for instance, he has been disguising himself as a legitimate way to dispose of waste. This includes the Disposal of asbestos, but instead of paying to dispose of it in legitimate ways he has decided it makes more sense to dispose of this on private land which taxpayers like you and I end up footing the bill for.

With the help of the BBC’s T.V. Rouge Traders he was apprehended and has been sent to prison for his actions.

It is reported that over a million properties suffer from fly tippers dumping on them illegally; that is an amazing one every 12 seconds…just remember when choosing your asbestos waste disposal that you don’t take the illegal option to save yourself a couple of pounds because the waste could end up on the property of a family member or friend.

How to dispose of asbestos

We all know that asbestos fibres can be deadly that’s why when you dispose of asbestos you should ensure the following guide lines are adhered to:



  • Asbestos must be stored in an environmentally safe manner.
  • Low level asbestos should be packed and secured at all times.
  • High level asbestos should be kept in a sealed container (i.e. skip)
  • You must wet down asbestos contaminated soils
  • Asbestos should only be transported in a leak proof vehicle
  • Use a landfill site that dispose of asbestos must have full EA license to do so

Waste Management Company’s Proposal for Disposal of Asbestos at Peterborough Site


A waste management company has made an application to Peterborough City Council planners to allow the disposal of asbestos waste at their Eye site.


The application is part of  an extension that would keep the site open until at least 2021.

Currently there are no sites in Peterborough that take asbestos and all waste needs to be taken to other sites across the UK.

The application has cause some concern with local councilors who are worried at the effects on the surrounding areas.

It will be discussed at the Planning and Environmental Protection Committee at 1.30pm on February 7 when a decision should be made on the application.

Jersey Can Be Added to British Isles’s Asbestos Disposal Sites

Asbestos disposal sites can be few and far between. Asbestos could be disposed of at Jersey’s incinerator – but the island’s waste management law means the public must be consulted before it can happen.

Transport and Technical Services want to get rid of the waste that has built up over the past five years.

David Monks, head of waste regulation for the States of Jersey, said asbestos was currently being stored in big shipping containers.

Transport and Technical Services have said they now need to dispose of it.

No details of the public consultation period have yet been released.
