Eurobodalla residents can safely rid their homes of unwanted pesticides, batteries, paints, varnishes and more this weekend at Eurobodalla Council’s annual Household Chemical Cleanout.
The collection provides a great opportunity for residents to safely dispose of harmful chemicals that cannot normally be taken to Council’s waste management facilities.
The cleanout collection points will accept fungicides, oxidisers, weed killers, household cleaners, fuel, oils, syringes, poisons, acids and alkalis, pool chemicals, gas cylinders, medicines, fertilisers and smoke detectors, free of charge.
Asbestos, explosives, clinical waste and radioactive materials will not be accepted.
Collections will be held at:
Moruya, on Saturday 5 September from 8am to 2.30pm, at the Gundary Oval car park on Campbell Street,
Batemans Bay, on Sunday 6 September from 8am to 2.30pm, at the Hanging Rock Boat Ramp, off Beach Road, and
Narooma, on Sunday 6 September from 8am to 2.30pm, at the Narooma Library car park on Graham Street.
More information about what will and will not be accepted at the Household Chemical Cleanout is on Council’s website www.esc.nsw.gov.au/waste or phone Eurobodalla Council’s waste department on 4474 1024.
The Household Chemical Cleanout is supported by Canberra Region Joint Organisation and partially funded by the NSW Environment Protection Authority.
