SAFE DISPOSAL OF HAZARDOUS HOUSEHOLD CHEMICALS

DrumMuster

DrumMuster is a national program for the collection and recycling of empty, cleaned (triple rinsed, no lids) containers that have held surfactants, dairy chemicals, liquid fertilisers and other non-hazardous farm chemicals. Golden Plains Shire participates in the DrumMuster scheme accepting suitability cleaned farm chemicals containers at the Rokewood Resourse Recovery Centre during the site's opening hours of Sunday 10am-3pm. No bookings are required, however we ask that no more than a trailer load of DrumMuster containers be brought to the site each visit.

Detox Your Home

Some household products can be dangerous and could harm your family or pets as they can release toxic fumes and pollute our environment. Do not pour them down the sink or put them out in your wheelie bins.

Hazardous waste may be dropped off at Gillies Street Transfer Station, South Ballarat (03 5334 2621). City of Greater Geelong organises Detox Your Home events on a regular basis, which are open to Golden Plains Shire residents. Paint, motor oils, fluorescent lighting tubes, dry cell household/domestic batteries are generally accepted at these facilities. For disposal of other hazardous materials, residents should check with relevant Transfer Station officers for disposal options.
