Asbestos

Any person handling and disposing of asbestos is required to comply with requirements of the Health (Asbestos) Regulations 1992 and businesses contracted to remove greater than 10 square metres of asbestos must hold a valid Asbestos Removal Licence.

Please visit the Department of Health website for detailed information about asbestos containing material and its removal.

If you would like to report an asbestos issue, please email the environmental health team at enquiries@karratha.wa.gov.au or use our 'Report It' platform here. A short video is available here that shows you how to save 'Report It' on the home screen of your smartphone.
