Do you have everyday household chemicals like weed killer, cleaning products, old cooking oil and cosmetics that you no longer use, but you don’t know how to get rid of them safely?

Dispose of them safely and for free at the Detox your Home event that we are co-hosting with Sustainability Victoria.

Event details

This event is taking place on Saturday 3 December from 9 am to 3 pm, at the Boroondara Recycling and Waste Centre (648 Riversdale Road, Camberwell).

It will be a contactless, drive-through event.

Reasons to dispose of household chemicals safely

Pouring household chemicals down the drain or placing them in the bin can harm the environment, including:

  • polluting our waterways
  • harming animals and vegetation
  • contaminating our water supply
  • making rivers and beaches unsafe for swimming. 

Detox your Home offers a free and convenient service for Victorian householders to safely dispose of unwanted and toxic chemicals.
