Are there items that removalists are not allowed to move?

Yes, the removalists have been advised by the ACT Asbestos Response Taskforce that they should not enter contaminated sub floor areas or ceiling areas and as such, items located in these areas must not be relocated unless they have been cleaned and cleared by a Class A licensed asbestos removalist. This must be done prior to the removal taking place and the clearance certificate of this work being carried out must be made available to the removalist. Also, items should not be removed from cupboards identified by a licensed asbestos assessor as contaminated. You will need to leave these goods behind for later disposal as contaminated waste by the ACT Government. Please view our information sheets for further details.
