Do you need to safely dispose of unwanted household chemicals? Household chemicals can be dangerous – they can harm your family and your pets, add extra fuel to a house fire, release toxic fumes and pollute the environment for future generations.
Detox your Home is a safe, free and easy-to-use service to dispose of unwanted household chemicals without harming your health or the environment. The collected items are recycled for recovery and diverted from landfill.
There are 31 Detox your Home mobile collections held across Victoria each year to ensure reasonable access for all Victorian householders. The program is administered by Sustainability Victoria in partnership with local councils and is funded by the Victorian landfill levy.
Visit the Detox your Home website for a complete list of upcoming mobile collections and accepted products.
You can register for the above collections online or by calling 1800 353 233. Registration is required to manage the traffic flow and avoid queues on the day, which means you can get in and out quickly.
