Exporting a UK-bought LHD car to France

Asbestos disposal FranceWhen you buy a house in France, a report about Abestos is done amongst other reports and surveys.

In Brittany old buildings often have asbestos roofs. One of my English clients had an outside toilet made of asbestos left by the previous owners!

I looked into it for her and found a place near Dinan, in St Carné to be precise, called “Romi”, that accepted asbestos disposal. We didn’t have to double wrap or package it in thick plastic; it was taken there on a trailer…

They charge €200/Ton.

If you don’t live near Dinan, ask at your local Déchetterie. They don’t recycle asbestos but might be able to inform you where the nearest place for safely disposing of asbestos is to yours.
