Free household Chemical CleanOut on Sunday 6 August

Residents can get rid of their old and unwanted hazardous chemical waste at Liverpool Council’s Household Chemical CleanOut event.

Chemical CleanOut is a joint venture between Liverpool City Council and the NSW Environmental Protection Authority, and is a safe and free way to dispose of unwanted chemicals you may have lying around the house.

Hazardous chemicals can be dropped off at the Liverpool City Council Operations Centre, 99 Rose Street Liverpool, from 9am to 3.30pm on Sunday August 6. Hazardous chemicals will not be accepted outside these hours.

“Come down to Council’s Operations Centre on August 6 to drop off your old poisons, pool chemicals and car batteries,” said Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller.

“Council’s last Chemical CleanOut was in February 2017 and we collected more than 11 tonnes of chemical waste.

“All chemicals collected on the day are disposed of in a safe and environmentally-friendly way.

“Take advantage of this great free service to do something good for the environment and clean out some space in your house at the same time.”
