Dextox your Home and Paintback are coming to Beechworth
Dispose of paint and everyday household chemicals such as bleach, pesticides, weed killers, cleaning products, cosmetics and cooking oil without harming your health or the environment.
Why recycle household chemicals?
Paint and household chemicals can be dangerous. They can harm your family and pets, add extra fuel to a house fire, release toxic fumes and pollute the environment now and into the future. Disposing of these items responsibly will:
- reduce the risk of poisoning, keeping your family and pets safe
- keep toxic chemicals out of waterways, and
- minimise environmental pollution and fire hazards.
With community safety in mind, Detox your Home events are now drive-through 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 the original packaging or disposable containers, with the contents clearly labelled. 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.
