Detox Your Home Chemical Collection
The Detox your Home mobile drop-off service accepts a wide range of household chemical products, including old cleaning products, left-over paint, dead batteries and weed killer stored around the home – without putting a strain on the environment.
Mobile drop-off days are scheduled at Council-owned locations around Victoria, usually on a Saturday. Farm chemicals are not accepted at this collection.
A collection was held in Warragul on Saturday 23 March 2013.
