Household Chemical Cleanout

We partner with the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment to give our residents a free and environmentally-safe way to dispose of unwanted household chemicals.

It's a great opportunity for you to clean out your cupboards, garages, sheds and laundries of unwanted chemicals and drop them into Council to be recycled or disposed of correctly.

  • fire extinguishers
  • pool chemicals
  • acids and alkalis
  • hobby chemicals, such as photography chemicals
