Asbestos Disposal Options

Effective immediately, asbestos disposal at the Campbell River Waste Management Center is unavailable until further notice. Residents and licensed waste haulers of the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) can use the Regional District of Nanaimo’s (RDN) solid waste facilities for the safe and appropriate disposal of asbestos-containing materials.

This temporary option is provided through a partnership between the RDN and the CVRD and enables residential and commercial loads of asbestos to be dropped off at the RDN’s Regional Landfill. Residential customers may also drop off asbestos at the RDN’s Church Road Transfer Station. 

  • Asbestos is accepted at the Nanaimo Regional Landfill on Tuesdays and Fridays between 10 am and 2 pm. Loads over 1,000 kg require a waste manifest and licensed hauler. To make an appointment at the Regional Landfill, please call 250-722-2044 ext. 3221.
  • Residential loads to a maximum of 2 bags, per day, can be taken to Church Road Transfer Station in Parksville without an appointment. For hours of operation, please visit

When dropping off asbestos, RDN and WorkSafe BC guidelines and regulations must be followed. Material must be double bagged in 6 mil poly asbestos bags, goose-neck tied, and sealed with duct tape. Material that is not properly bagged will not be accepted. For more information, please visit:
