Service review

Please note: The Household Chemical Collection Program is currently undergoing a review. This includes Detox your Home mobile collection services, and permanent drop-off sites for paint, batteries and compact fluorescent lights.

The review will consider options for future delivery of the program. A decision is expected in May 2016.

If you would like to receive program updates please email us and we will keep you informed.



Mobile collections may be cancelled if there are significant safety risks.

If a Code Red Fire Danger Rating has been declared in the area on collection day, the event will be rescheduled. For fire warnings call the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667 or visit the Country Fire Authority website.
