Household Problem Wastes

Household Chemical Cleanout

There are a number of ways to correctly dispose of household problem wastes in the NetWaste region, such as gas cylinders, paint, fluorescent tubes, pesticides, chemicals etc. The available services vary between Councils largely due to funding, however we are continuing the push to improve accessibility across the region.

Household Chemical CleanOut

Funded by the Waste Less Recycle More (WLRM) program, the HCC provides $11 million for a partnership program with local councils to support mobile collection services for safe disposal of household chemical products, including household cleaners, pool and hobby chemicals and pesticides.

In the NetWaste region, the collection event typically runs during October-November and involves a contractor setting up at an appropriate site (typically landfill, Council works depot or accessible public land) for either a full or half day to accept your unwanted items.

CleanOut events have been running in the NetWaste region for many years with the community response and volume collected continuing to grow making it one of the region’s most successful waste management programs.

Keep any eye out on your local media leading up to this time for local collection details or visit the EPA website to find more information.
