The scheme is designed to eradicate ongoing exposure risks from the continuing presence of loose fill asbestos insulation in Canberra homes through assistance, buyback, demolition and sales.
Loose fill asbestos insulation – from removal to renewal
Many of the Canberra properties affected by loose fill asbestos insulation (also called Mr Fluffy) have now progressed from removal to renewal. Together with the Canberra community, we are realising the ACT Government's goal of eliminating Mr Fluffy from Canberra suburbs.
The Asbestos Response Taskforce continues to support current and former homeowners, tenants and neighbours affected by loose fill asbestos insulation.
