For four consecutive Saturdays during the month of June, Cleanaway’s Technical and Environmental Services team participated in the Waste Authority-funded Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program, collecting aerosols, paint, batteries and other unwanted or expired products deemed too hazardous for the general or recycling bins.

The hazardous waste items were collected, segregated and brought to the Cleanaway Kwinana Beach facility for safe processing and disposal.

Household Hazardous Waste Program

The Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program provides Local Governments with funding to assist with the safe collection, storage and disposal of HHW. The Program is administered by the Western Australian Local Government Association (WALGA) and funded by the Waste Authority through the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Levy. The Program began in 2008 and is currently funded until 2023.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) are household products that are no longer needed or have reached their end-of-life, which contain chemicals or substances that can be harmful to you, your children, your pets, or the environment. This may include a broad range of products that are flammable, toxic, reactive or corrosive.

Cleanaway has worked across different councils around the Perth metropolitan region collecting approximately 65 tonnes of hazardous waste to date.
