Upcoming events

Sustainability Victoria is focused on your health and safety.

Detox your Home collection days scheduled to be held before 30 June 2020 have been postponed due to the nature and logistics of the event and the challenges posed by current circumstances in Victoria.

Here’s how to store unwanted household chemicals until you can safely dispose of them. Correct storage will help to keep your family, pets and the environment safe.

Information regarding future Detox your Home events will be available on this page and included in the TAKE2 newsletter.
