Safe Ways to dispose hazardous chemicals in households

household chemicals

Disposing harmful household chemicals down the drain, or in the bin is harmful to the environment, not to mention our health!

The best way to dispose of chemicals in NSW is at a CleanOut event, hosted by the government.

These events happen throughout the year, and for more information on a CleanOut event near you, visit this link.

These are the kinds of chemicals you can take to a CleanOut event:

  • Solvents and household cleaners
  • Floor care products
  • Ammonia-based cleaners
  • Pesticides and herbicides
  • Poisons
  • Pool chemicals
  • Hobby chemicals
  • Acids and alkalis
