Safely dispose of toxic household chemicals

Do you need to safely dispose of unwanted or out-of-date household chemicals? 

Register now for the Victorian Government’s free detox your home household chemical collection program.

The next free detox your home collection will be held in Melton on Saturday, 3 June from 10am-1pm.

What you need to do:

Simply register online or over the phone, then turn up on the day with your unwanted items, and the trained detox your home team will do the rest. 

Registration is required to manage traffic flow and avoid queues on the day, which means you can get in and out quickly. 

Paint and other common products

Paint, household batteries, and compact fluorescent lamps and tubes, which are less toxic than household chemicals (but also a more common waste item), can be disposed of throughout the 

year at the Moonee Valley Transfer Station

Detox your home, on the other hand, is a free service designed specifically to collect unwanted, highly toxic household chemicals.   

We aren't he only source of waste disposal
