Now is your chance to dispose of your unwanted household chemicals safely, responsibly and for free.

The REROC Waste Forum and the City of Wagga Wagga are holding two free Household Chemical CleanOut events for local residents on 1 April and 8 April at the Gregadoo Waste Management Centre between 9am and 3pm.

Up to 20 litres of unwanted chemicals can be dropped off, including garden chemicals, solvents and household cleaners, pesticides and herbicides, pool chemicals, acids and alkalis, and poisons.

The collections are a great opportunity for residents to dispose of any old chemicals they may have in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

Paint and paint related products, car batteries, gas cylinders and fire extinguishers, smoke detectors and fluorescent globes and tubes will also be accepted on the day.

Commercial quantities will be accepted and a per litre collection fee will be charged that must be paid on the day. Bookings are essential for commercial quantities - to make a booking please call 0409 938 553.

Please remember to transport your materials carefully and to remain in your vehicle at the collection site.

This is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
