Steps to safely dispose of your household chemicals

Remember to check what’s accepted.

We don’t accept:

  • paint
  • fluorescent lights
  • batteries.

Registration is required.

On the day, follow these safety procedures:

  • Clearly and accurately label your items:
    • Use the original packaging if possible. If not, write the contents clearly using a permanent marker
    • If you’re unsure of the contents, label them ‘unknown’.
  • Put your items safely in your empty car boot or ute tray.
  • Bring your Eventbrite order number (from your online registration).
  • Only one person per car. You won’t need to unload anything yourself.
  • Drive in and follow the signs and directions.
  • Stay in your car and our chemists will do the rest.

Follow all current public health measures at the time, including wearing a face covering if required and staying home if you feel unwell. Find the latest information and updates on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Victoria website.

If you can’t get to an event, store your household chemicals until you can safely dispose of them.

How much you can drop off at a Detox your home event

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.

Event safety

Events 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 cancelled.

For fire warnings call the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667 or visit the Country Fire Authority website.
