Loose-fill asbestos in NSW homes

 

 

Young is one of 28 identified local government areas where the NSW Government is providing FREE sample testing for loose-fill asbestos.

Owners of homes built before 1980 have until 1 August 2016 to register for assistance under the Government’s Voluntary Purchase and Demolition program.

Loose-fill asbestos is raw crushed asbestos which in the 1960s and 70s was pumped into ceilings as insulation.

It is a problem that cannot be ignored. Over time, exposure pathways open up and airborne asbestos can move from ceiling space to living areas.
