Central Coast Garbos Exposed To Asbestos 1Coast / Facebook

The Central Coast's garbage collection service says staff have been exposed to asbestos after it was uncovered in green bins.

Waste contractor 1Coast took to Facebook overnight, hitting out over the shock discovery of the dangerous material among garden waste, believed to have originated in either Umina or Ettalong Beach.

Residents face $7,500 dollar fines for illegal asbestos dumping, while it’s $15,000 on the spot for businesses.

The Environment Protection Authority has been approached for comment.
