It is important to dispose of chemical waste appropriately as they can have a serious impact on the environment if not handled correctly.
Please check with your council prior to dropping off materials if the materials are actually accepted at their listed depot.
Visit the WA Waste Authority website for household chemical disposal information and a comprehensive list of what can and cannot be accepted at their drop off locations.
