Highly toxic items, such as chemicals, should never be put in your rubbish bins, poured down the drain, or left out on the nature strip during hard rubbish collections.

You can drop off unwanted household chemicals at this free Detox Your Home event, which is licensed to accept toxic chemicals and staffed by trained specialist chemists.

You must register to attend. Please use the link below to register.

Register your attendance.

Detox your Home events are now drive-through (we cannot accept walk-ins) and contactless.

For safety reasons we cannot accept containers of more than 20 litres or 20 kilograms at Detox your Home events. Chemicals must be brought in their original packaging or inside a disposable container, ensuring they are clearly labelled.
