About Detox your Home
Detox your Home is a free service for householders to dispose of potentially dangerous household chemical products safely and easily without harming the environment. Detox your Home is administered by Sustainability Victoria and delivered in partnership with local governments and is funded by the Victorian landfill levy.
Victorians can take their household chemical products to a convenient Detox your Home drop-off point at either a permanent site or through the mobile service. All Victorian householders can use any of the drop-off points for free.
Businesses of any sort are ineligible to use the Detox your Home service and should instead contact a chemical waste disposal service provider - a list is provided at the bottom of the page, or look in the Yellow Pages). For further information call Sustainability Victoria on 1800 35 32 33.
Detox your Home - permanent sites
Paint, motor oil, all types of batteries, BBQ gas cylinders and fluorescent tubes can be dropped off year round at the permanent sites located at specific transfer stations.
