Free household chemical CleanOut on Sunday 26 February

You can get rid of those old paint and oil cans at Liverpool Council’s Household Chemical CleanOut on Sunday 26 February. This combined venture between Liverpool Council and the NSW Environmental Protection Authority is a safe way to dispose of unwanted chemicals that are taking up room around the house.

The drop-off point for the Chemical CleanOut will be Liverpool City Council Operations Centre, 99 Rose Street Liverpool, from 9am to 3.30pm. Chemicals will not be accepted outside these hours.

“Bring your gas bottles, pool chemicals and car batteries to Council’s depot and drop them off for free,” said Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller.

“This fantastic initiative helps residents protect the local environment by taking their unwanted chemicals to a facility where they can be disposed of correctly.

“Council’s last Chemical CleanOut was in August 2016, and we collected more than 17 tonnes of chemical waste, including water-based paint, oil, oil-based paint, lead-acid batteries and propane gas cylinders. So take advantage of this great offer while you can.
