Household Chemical Cleanout on again

Eurobodalla residents can rid their homes of unwanted chemicals for free later this month at Eurobodalla Council’s annual Household Chemical Cleanout.

The chemical cleanout enables residents to take unwanted chemicals, including pesticides, gas bottles, paints, varnishes and more, to designated drop-off points in Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma on September 23 and 24.

Eurobodalla Council’s Waste Minimisation officer Belinda Wagner said it was a great opportunity for residents to safely dispose of harmful chemicals not normally accepted at local waste management facilities.

“You can take paints, fungicides, household batteries, oxidisers, weed killers, household cleaners, fuel, compact fluorescent light globes, oils, syringes, poisons, acids and alkalis, pool chemicals, gas cylinders, medicines, fertilisers and smoke detectors to the collection venues,” she said.

“Asbestos, explosives, clinical waste and radioactive materials will not, however, be accepted.”

More information about what is and isn’t accepted is in Eurobodalla Council’s Household Waste and Recycling Guide, delivered to all households and available at

The cleanout is a NSW Environmental Protection Authority ‘Waste Less, Recycle More’ initiative, partly funded from the NSW Government waste levy.

For more information, please phone Eurobodalla Council’s waste enquiries line on 02 4474 1024.
