Detox Your Home - Household Chemical Collection Program

Do you need to safely dispose of unwanted, highly toxic household chemicals? Household chemicals can be dangerous – they can harm your family and your pets, add extra fuel to a house fire, release toxic fumes and pollute the environment for future generations.

Detox your Home is a safe, free and easy-to-use service to dispose of unwanted, highly toxic household chemicals without harming your health or the environment.

The collected items are recycled for recovery and diverted from landfill.

There are up to 31 Detox your Home mobile collections held across Victoria each year to ensure reasonable access for all Victorian householders. The program is administered by Sustainability Victoria in partnership with local councils and is funded by the Victorian landfill levy.

Upcoming Detox your Home mobile collections

Reduce the risk of poisoning, environmental pollution and bushfire hazards and improve recycling rates by dropping off unwanted chemicals at the Rural City of Wangaratta’s free chemical collection program.

This free mobile Household Chemical Collection Program is held in May each year and the Rural City of Wangaratta encourages residents to do the right thing and correctly dispose of their unwanted household chemicals through Detox your Home.
