Detox your Home
Household Chemical Collection Program
Do you need to safely dispose of unwanted, highly toxic household chemicals?
Upcoming Detox your Home mobile collections
Reduce the risk of poisoning, environmental pollution and bushfire hazards and improve recycling rates by dropping off unwanted chemicals at the Victorian Government’s FREE chemical collection program.
More information is available online or by calling 1300 363 744.
Permanent drop-off sites for paint and other products
Household paint, batteries, and fluorescent lights – which are less toxic than household chemicals (but also a more common waste item) – can be disposed of throughout the year at a permanent drop-off site.
Detox your Home, on the other hand, is a free service designed specifically to collect unwanted, highly toxic household chemicals.
There are nearby permanent drop-off sites at:
Hampton Park Resource Recovery Precinct
Monash Waste Transfer and Recycling Station
For more information and a full list of permanent drop-off sites visit Sustainability Victoria's website or contact the City of Greater Dandenong on 8571 1000.
