Household chemical collection

Chemical collection

Detox your Home allows you to dispose of unwanted household chemicals for free without harming your health or the environment. The collected items are recycled and do not go to landfill.

The Detox your Home mobile collection service is administered by Sustainability Victoria in partnership with local councils and is funded by the Victorian landfill levy.
