What is WasteLocate?
If you transport asbestos waste, asbestos soils or waste tyres, you may be required to use EPA’s WasteLocate. WasteLocate tracks each load of asbestos or tyre waste from pick up to disposal using the GPS in your smart device. It generates a unique consignment number just like a parcel in the post. WasteLocate was developed to help prevent illegal dumping of asbestos and tyres.
