Service review

Please note: The Household Chemical Collection Program underwent a review in late 2015. This included 'Detox your Home' mobile collection services, and permanent drop-off sites for paint, batteries and compact fluorescent lights.

The review considered options for future delivery of the program; in 2016-17 the program will continue business-as-usual to deliver the annual 'Detox your Home' mobile collections and permanent drop-off sites.

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