Detox your home

This free services enable householders to dispose of potentially dangerous household chemicals and a number of targeted products. The service, administered by Sustainability Victoria, is delivered in partnership with local governments and funded by the Victorian landfill levy.

The services are delivered via two collection systems (Permanent sites and Mobile collections). Victorian householders can use either service at any location free of charge.

Permanent drop-off sites for paint and other products

Household paint, batteries, compact fluorescent lamps – which are less toxic than household chemicals ­(but also a more common waste item) – can be disposed of for free at a permanent drop-off site throughout the year.

Detox your Home mobile collections, on the other hand, are free services designed specifically to collect unwanted highly toxic household chemicals only.

There is a nearby drop-off site at:

Hampton Park Transfer Station
274 Hallam Rd, Hampton Park
Telephone: (03) 9799 6277

For more information and a full list of permanent drop-off sites visit the Sustainability Victoria website or contact Council

Detox Your Home mobile collections

Do you need to safely dispose of unwanted 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 30 Detox Your Home mobile collections held across Victoria each year to enable all Victorian householders to access this free service. The program is administered by Sustainability Victoria in collaboration with local councils and funded by the Victorian landfill levy.

Visit the Sustainability Victoria Detox Your Home website for a complete list of upcoming mobile collections and accepted products.

Detox Your Home – do the right thing for your loved ones and your environment. It’s easy and it’s free.
