It is important to dispose of chemical waste appropriately as they can have a serious impact on the environment if not handled correctly and can be hazardous if placed in the waste or recycling bins.
Keep these out of your waste and recycling bin
Household chemical waste and hazardous materials include:
- household cleaners,
- automotive products
- garden chemicals
- pool cleaners
- gas canisters
- Fluoro tubes and globes
Please check with your council prior to dropping off materials if the materials are actually accepted at their listed depot or they may offer a chemical clean up day.
