Toilet cisterns and seats contain chrysotile asbestos which is bonded within the resin. They present no health risk if they are in good condition, however they have to be disposed of the same as any other asbestos containing products. We collect asbestos from homes and businesses on a weekly basis throughout Cumbria, Lancashire, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and North Wales. There cost is made up of a fixed collection fee, double bagging and the weight of the material.
