2. Asbestos

The Health and Safety Executive website shows you where you can find asbestos, what asbestos looks like and why asbestos is dangerous.

If you're a Stockport Homes tenant you should contact 0161 218 1587 for advice. Housing Association tenants should contact their area officer. Private tenants should contact their landlord or agent.

Asbestos is classed as hazardous waste and is not accepted at recycling centres. To find out where you can dispose of household asbestos, visit the Recycle for Greater Manchester website.
