City West Water

A safe, free service to dispose toxic, unwanted chemicals

Detox your home is an initiative provided by Sustainability Victoria (in collaboration with local councils) that provides safe, free service to dispose of toxic, unwanted household chemicals.

This allows for the recovery and diversion of toxic chemicals away from landfill, waterways, soil and our sewerage system.

As this initiative is for households only there is no limit on the volume of materials you drop-off. However the maximum acceptable weight or size of any single container is 20 kilograms or 20 litres.

Different councils provide events at various times of the year. Whilst others provide permanent drop-off sites.

Visit Sustainability Victoria to find your nearest location and what items are accepted.
