Detox your Home- Household Chemical Collection Program
Published on 04 October 2018
Do you need to safely dispose of unwanted, highly toxic 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, highly toxic household chemicals without harming your health or the environment.
The collected items are recovered and diverted from landfill.
There are up to 33 Detox your Home events 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.
The next household chemical collection program is coming to Bendigo on Saturday 13 October 2018 from 10am to 1.00pm, and Loddon Shire Council, in partnership with Sustainability Victoria, is encouraging residents to take the opportunity to get rid of unwanted – and potentially dangerous – items like pesticides, detergents and weed killers.
The Detox your Home Chemical Collection event will be held at Eaglehawk Eco Centre- 189 Upper California Gully Road, Eaglehawk.
