No, you cannot re-use any material containing asbestos; it is illegal.
A national ban on the re-use of asbestos products came into effect on 31 December 2003. You should also not reuse any materials or disposable personal protective equipment (PPE) (e.g. coveralls and respirators) that have been used to carryout work with asbestos. All materials containing asbestos and asbestos residue (including contaminated materials, cleaning rags, drop sheets and personal protective equipment) must be disposed of as asbestos waste.
Asbestos waste must be double wrapped in heavy duty (minimum 0.2mm or 200 microns thick) plastic (polythene) bags (available at most hardware shops) and disposed of at an appropriate waste facility.
