"Detox Your Home" of chemicals safely

Monday, 14 May, 2018

Have you got household chemicals that you need to dispose of?

Strathbogie Shire residents are being urged to ‘Detox your Home’ – a safe, free and easy-to-use service to dispose of common, highly toxic household chemicals without harming your health or the environment.

The household chemical collection program is coming to Mitchell Shire Council’s Seymour Works Depot (behind Seymour Sports & Aquatic Centre) on Saturday 2 June between 10am-2pm.

Strathbogie Shire Waste Engineer Darren Ritchie is encouraging residents to make the most of the Seymour event as it is currently the closest collection program for Strathbogie Shire residents to dispose of their household chemicals- like pesticides, detergents and weed killers.

“Chemical wastes of any kind cannot be accepted at any of Strathbogie Shire Council’s Waste Transfer Stations, so the collection event occurring in Seymour provides the best opportunity for our residents to dispose of their unwanted toxic household chemicals,” Mr Ritchie explained.

Before attending the Seymour event, residents are reminded to check the list of items which can be accepted, by visiting http://www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/You-and-Your-Home/Waste-and-recycling/Detox-your-home/Items-accepted-and-not-accepted and can call 1300 363 744 for further information about the event.
