The popular Detox your Home service returns this month

10 Aug 2017

The Detox your Home program this month gives you access to a safe, free and easy-to-use service that allows the community to dispose of household chemicals without harming their health or the environment.

Whitehorse Councillor Bill Bennett said items taken to the next Detox Your Home day on Saturday 19 August would be recycled or reprocessed in order to divert them from landfill.

“Items such as cooking oil, coolant, detergents and disinfectants can be taken along for safe disposal in this free initiative by Sustainability Victoria with local government. It is wise to regularly dispose of unwanted household chemicals as they can harm your family and pets if used incorrectly or left lying around,” Cr Bennett said.

The next disposal day situated close to the Whitehorse area is on Saturday 19 August from 8am-4pm in Camberwell. You must register to use this service and receive the collection point address.

To register and view a list of accepted items, visit sustainability.vic.gov.au/detoxyourhome or phone 1800 353 233.
