The safest way to dispose of potentially hazardous household chemicals is at a Household Chemical Clean Out event.

What can I drop off:

  • From your home: solvents, household cleaners, floor care products, ammonia based cleaners, fluorescent globes and tubes.
  • From your vehicle: vehicle batteries, motor oils, fuels and fluids
  • From your garage: paint and paint related products, pesticides and herbicides, poisons, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, pool chemicals, hobby chemicals, acids and alkalis

Storing and transporting unwanted chemicals

Handle and transport chemicals carefully:

  • Never mix chemicals as this may produce dangerous reactions.
  • Wherever possible keep all chemicals in their original containers.
  • Ensure containers are clearly labelled and well-sealed. If you do not know the contents, label the container 'unknown chemical'.
  • Liquid can leak during transport: wrap containers holding liquids securely in newspaper, place in sturdy plastic bags and then in plastic buckets or trays.
  • Keep household chemicals away from passengers, e.g. in the boot of your car.
