We have a garage (the original with the ex-gov house) that I’m assuming contains asbestos (house built in the 60′s) that we want removed. Have been reading a bit about asbestos removal in the ACT but just wondering what the best (cheapest but still safe) way to do it is. I think our options are:
1. Pay a professional asbestos remover to come and take care of the whole job (garage panels, roof, frame and concrete slab)
2. Dismantle the whole garage ourselves and pay someone to take just the asbestos away (and we get a skip for the rest)
3. Dismantle the whole garage ourselves and break up the asbestos sheets and take them to the tip (wrapped up etc) (and probably get a skip for the rest)
Anyone got any advice on the best course of action out of these ideas or have any other suggestions?
Also, do we need to get planning approval for its removal?
