Get ready for the 2017 Household Chemical CleanOut! This year’s CleanOut will be held on Sunday, 27 August 2017 at Hawkesbury Showground, Racecourse Road, Clarendon between 9am and 3:30pm.
The Household Chemical CleanOut is a FREE service for the safe disposal of a range of common household chemicals, many of which could cause harm to human health and the environment if disposed of in regular garbage bins or tipped into drains.
Residents can dispose of paint and paint related products, herbicides, pesticides, poisons, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, pool chemicals, hobby chemicals, acids and alkalis, solvents, household cleaners, motor oils, fuels, fluids, batteries, and fluorescent globes and tubes. Individual container sizes up to 20L or 20kg are accepted.
This event is run by the NSW Environment Protection Authority in conjunction with Hawkesbury City Council Chemical CleanOut
