Free Household Chemical Drop off Program


Do you need to dispose of unwanted household chemicals? You can reduce the risk of poisoning, environmental pollution and bushfire hazards, as well as improve recycling rates, by dropping off unwanted chemicals at Moyne Shire’s Detox your Home event.

Detox your Home is a safe, free and easy-to-use service to dispose of common household chemicals without harming your health or the environment.

This free mobile Household Chemical Drop off Program is coming to Warrnambool and Moyne Shire encourages residents to do the right thing by their loved ones, the local community and the environment and get rid of unwanted – and potentially dangerous – household chemicals through Detox your Home.

Paint and other common products

Household paint, batteries, and fluorescent lights – which are less toxic than household chemicals ­ (but also a more common waste item) – can be disposed of throughout the year at a permanent drop-off site.

Detox your Home, on the other hand, is a free service designed specifically to collect unwanted, highly toxic household chemicals.

For a full list of permanent drop-off sites or to find out more about Detox your Home visit or contact Moyne Shire Council on (03) 5568 0555


Detox your Home is a free service for all Victorian householders. It is administered by Sustainability Victoria in partnership with local councils and funded by the Victorian landfill levy.
