If you live in the Burnie, Central Coast, Circular Head, Devonport, Kentish, Latrobe, or Waratah-Wynyard council areas and you’ve got old or unwanted household and garden chemicals stored at home, now is the time to safely send them on their way.
FREE drop-off events are taking place at four locations across the region on Saturday 17th April and Sunday 18th April 2021.
Clean out those cupboards and sheds and bring any of these items along for safe disposal:
Solvents and household cleaners
Floor care products
Pesticides and herbicides
Acids and alkalis
Pack items in a sturdy box for transport in the boot of your car or ute tray. Make sure individual containers are no larger than 20 kilograms or 20 litres in size.
NOTE: the following items are NOT included in this free special service – motor oil, asbestos, pharmaceuticals, farm vet chemicals, fire extinguishers, ammunition and explosives, and chemicals from commercial businesses. Contact your council for disposal advice for these items.
For safety reasons, no early or late drop-offs will be accepted. Talk with your neighbours or friends to arrange shared delivery if you are unable to make it at the specified times.
