Elong Elong Waste facility reopened after asbestos incident

Dubbo Regional Council wishes to advise residents that the Elong Elong Waste facility has reopened.

The facility was closed last Friday after a routine inspection found a case of illegal asbestos dumping at the site.

If you have asbestos to dispose of please follow the appropriate steps. Call the 1800 Asbestos Hotline (1800 272 378), which provides free advice and guidance on asbestos-related issues and is a central point of contact for all asbestos enquiries in NSW.

If your enquiry is about asbestos waste disposal then call the EPA’s Environment Line on 131 555, or visit www.asbestosawareness.com.au.

Alternatively asbestos can be disposed of at the Whylandra Waste & Recycling Centre, please call ahead to make arrangements.
