We recently supported Sustainability Victoria’s Detox Your Home event in Frankston with providing hazardous waste testing and disposal services for 5.9 tonnes of toxic chemicals, the equivalent of 19.2 kilograms per household.
Over 300 residents attended the event which provided a safe and free service to dispose of unwanted household chemicals such as solvents, poisons and cleaning products. The chemicals collected are treated and recycled wherever possible, and the remaining safely disposed of according to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements.

Household chemicals are a fire, health and environmental risk when not disposed of correctly. The Detox Your Home initiative is delivered by Sustainability Victoria and partners with local councils and Cleanaway to provide mobile drop-off sites for chemicals that cannot be disposed of in a regular kerbside collection service.
We also serviced similar events in Morwell and Wantirna and will continue to support upcoming events in Victoria.
