Where can I take my asbestos-containing drywall?

Warning message

Some recycling and solid waste facilities are temporarily closed, operating with reduced hours, or accepting a limited range of materials – please call ahead. Consider delaying your visit to facilities unless absolutely necessary by storing dry recyclables and other items at home temporarily.

There are very few disposal facilities that accept asbestos-containing drywall in British Columbia.  At this time, most asbestos-containing drywall is sent to a disposal facility in Alberta.

Contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline for information on asbestos disposal.  In many cases, local abatement companies are able to accept asbestos-containing drywall from residents and transport the material to an Alberta facility.
