Awareness Campaigns

Asbestos Awareness Month


November is asbestos awareness month and it is time for the community to take a moment to consider the risk of exposure to asbestos in the home.

Resident's should do a home audit of their residence to become aware of what, if any, asbestos they have around their homes.

It is very important not to disturb or remove any asbestos that you may discover around your home. If you are concerned about any materials that you think may be asbestos, contact your local licensed asbestos removal contractor for an evaluation.

Information about asbestos is available at or you can also talk to Health & Building inspectors at the Young Shire Council should you need further assistance.
