It’s time to clean those unwanted household chemicals out of your shed, cupboard and from under your sink to dispose of them safely at Sustainability Victoria’s Detox your Home event on Saturday 28 May at the Nillumbik Recycling Centre in Plenty.
Co-hosted with Nillumbik Shire Council, Detox your Home is a free and convenient service for householders to safely dispose of everyday household chemicals such as weedkiller, cleaning chemicals, old cooking oil and cosmetics.
With community safety in mind, Detox your Home events are now drive-through (no walk-ins accepted) and contactless, supported by a COVIDSafe plan.
Registration to the event is essential and can be done via Eventbrite.
Detox your Home events are staffed by expert chemists who understand how to safely manage household chemicals. Chemicals are safely stored during the event, then transported to a licensed processing facility at the end of the day.
An extensive number of items can be accepted. Visit www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/accepteditems for a full list. These are some of the most common chemicals collected:
