You can legally remove asbestos without the help of a professional from your own home if it is less than or equal to 10 square metres (non-friable only). However, there are specific requirements that you must follow to ensure you are protecting your health and safety.

Wear appropriate PPE, particularly an Australian Standards P2 (minimum_ disposable mask and coveralls. Do not use power tools, except if you’re removing screws. Fibro sheets should be wet down first to reduce the creation and movement of dust. Seal the sheets in plastic, ideally one that’s construction-grade. Contact Backyard Bins to help you with the disposal of asbestos.
