Specialist waste disposal

It’s important to know that if you want to dispose of hazardous waste such as asbestos, you need to have pre-approval. This means you can’t just turn up at the landfill with an item and expect it to be accepted. Even when you have approval, we still need you to give us a heads up it’s coming (24 hours in advance).

What do I need pre-approval to dispose of?

You need pre-approval to dispose of the following:

  • Semi liquid waste
  • Certain contaminated and hazardous wastes
  • Putrescible waste
  • Vehicle parts
  • Skins/pelts or similar waste
  • Chromium contaminated waste
  • Hydrogen sulphide contaminated waste
  • Asbestos
  • Fire damaged material(s)

How do I get pre-approval?

Once you have an account you need to start using a hazardous waste manifest each time you are ready to bring hazardous waste to site.

  1. Download our hazardous waste manifest.
  2. Complete the form (making sure it’s signed by the account holder) and send back to
  3. Wait for an approval/rejection email with details.
  4. Bring your load to landfill.
  5. Await assessment by landfill staff. They will sign the form if it meets the requested requirements.
  6. Load is accepted/not accepted. Staff have the right to reject loads that are deemed unsafe/uncompliant, i.e., asbestos that is not sealed correctly.
  7. Forms are completed and both account holder and landfill receive a copy.
