Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
When 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.
