The popular Detox your Home service is operating in March

8 Mar 2018

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 a Detox your Home event was coming up this month in Doncaster East, a location close to Whitehorse and handy for our local residents who would like  to use this convenient service.
“Items taken to this next Detox Your Home day on Saturday 24 March would be recycled or reprocessed in order to divert them from landfill,” Cr Bennett said.

“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.

“Regularly taking an inventory of household chemicals and carefully disposing of unwanted ones is a great way to keep the home safe, and make sure family and pets avoid harm from chemicals used incorrectly or left lying around.”

The disposal service in Doncaster East runs from 8am-4pm. Participants must register to nominate a time they wish to attend and to get address details.
