If you really want to risk bagging a small amount of WHITE astestos type board for collection then use really robust plastc bags of the type you get builder's sand in, wear a mask and gloves and avoid all the contact you can.
If it's a sustantial amount, or it's not white, or it's broken, crumbing or flaking or needs breaking up to fit into a bag then get the professionals in. IT REALLY IS THAT INSIDIOUS AND DANGEROUS.
This and double this!
To add, I would wear old clothing, de robe outside and bag up old clothes to be disposed along with the bags of asbestos, shower straight away.
Whoever left that there wants shooting, possibly criminal.
