Asbestos Notifications, Fee Processing & Fee Schedule
Learn more about the asbestos notification process and requirements
How to Pay
Fees can be paid in the following ways:
- Through the Pinellas County Citizen Access Portal
- By check, mailed or hand-delivered
Separate notifications and fees are required for renovations and demolitions at the same facility. Notifications cannot be combined.
If, in the course of a demolition or renovation, it is determined that the project belongs in a higher fee category than initially determined, an owner/operator must revise the original notification and pay the balance of the fee for the higher category.
Fee requirements do not apply when the NESHAP demolition or asbestos removal project is in a school, college or university.
Pay by Check
If paying by check, make it payable to “PC BCC” and include a copy of the official notification. Mail or deliver to:
