About Detox Your Home

Toxic household chemicals, such as cleaning products, pool chemicals and pesticides can be safely disposed of for free at Sustainability Victoria's Detox Your Home events, in partnership with local councils. Collected items are recovered for reuse or safely disposed of.

With community safety in mind, Detox your Home events are now drive-through (no walk-ins) and contactless, supported by a COVIDSafe plan. For the latest advice and COVIDSafe Settings please visit coronavirus.vic.gov.au

Chemicals can’t be decanted, so bring them in disposable, clearly labelled containers. If you don’t know what’s inside a container, label it as ‘unknown’. The maximum acceptable weight or size for a single container is 20 kilograms or 20 litres. If you can’t get to an event, here’s how to store unwanted household chemicals until you can safely dispose of them.

Any details you supply will be treated in accordance with Sustainability Victoria’s Privacy Policy.
