Waste & Recycling Chemical CleanOut
Thanks to all our residents who participated in the last Chemical Cleanout held on 22 and 23 October 2016. We had 1,456 people attending and collected over 43 tons of material, the majority of which was paint (72%).
The next Cleanout event in the Northern Region will run on:
Saturday 2 & Sunday 3 September 2017 9am – 3.30pm Warringah Aquatic Centre carpark Aquatic Drive, Frenchs Forest
There are Cleanout events running throughout the Sydney region all year. The Chemical CleanOut Service is a state-run service and is free for all NSW residents, regardless of which council area, an event is in (unless stated otherwise). For more information and a full timetable, see the Chemical Cleanout brochure or the EPA website.
Acceptable products include:
Only household quantities accepted: 20L or 20Kg maximum container size.
Residents can also drop off their old chemicals at any drop-off point Sydney-wide (unless specified).
For more information about dates and locations, go to the Chemical CleanOut website or call the NSW Environment Line on 131 555.
This is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy. Visit www.epa.nsw.gov.au to find out more.
