Before attending a Detox Your Home event it is important to check which toxic household chemicals are accepted.
There is no limit on the volume of materials you drop-off, however the maximum acceptable weight or size of any single container is 20 kilograms or 20 litres.
Decanting is not permitted so bring chemicals in disposal containers.
You can drop medicines for free at your local pharmacy through the Return Unwanted Medicines (RUM) project. Your pharmacist will put your medicines in a secure bin for collection and safe disposal.
Permanent drop-off sites accept household paint, batteries and fluorescent lights for free. These sites are typically located at council transfer stations and depots and are accessible all year round. Contact your local council for other products you can drop off at permanent sites, disposal fees and opening hours.
