A free, contactless service to safely dispose of unwanted toxic household chemicals.

About this Event

Toxic household chemicals, such as cleaning products, pool chemicals, and weed killer, can be safely disposed of for free at Sustainability Victoria's Detox Your Home events. Collected items are recovered for reuse or safely disposed of.

'Detox Your Home' events are now drive-through (no walk-ins) and contactless, supported by a COVIDSafe plan.

This service is for household chemicals only.

We don’t take paint, fluorescent lights and batteries.

  • The maximum acceptable weight or size for any single container is 20 kilograms or 20 litres.
  • Decanting isn’t permitted, so bring chemicals in disposable, clearly labelled containers. If you don’t know what’s inside, label the item as ‘unknown’.

View the full list of items accepted and not accepted.


At the event:

  • Put your clearly labelled items in the empty boot of your car or ute tray.
  • Have your confirmation email available for our event staff to confirm your Order number on arrival.
  • Only one person per vehicle can attend – you won’t need to unload anything yourself.
  • Drive-in and follow the event signage and directions.
  • Stay in your car and our trained chemists will do the rest.
  • Remember to follow all current public health measures at the time, including wearing a face covering and staying home if you feel unwell.

For public health measures, visit the Department of Health and Human Services website.

If you can’t get to an event, here’s how to store unwanted household chemicals until you can safely dispose of them.

Any details you supply will be treated in accordance with Sustainability Victoria’s Privacy Policy.

This event is delivered by Sustainability Victoria in partnership with local governments.
