Household Chemical CleanOut

Don't throw household chemicals in the garbage, incinerator, down drains or sinks, down toilets or outside in the gully traps. They can harm your family and the environment.

Dispose of your old chemicals safely by taking them to one of the free Household Chemical CleanOut drop-off centres. CleanOut drop-off centres operate in different Council areas around Sydney throughout the year.

What can I drop off?

Household quantities - 20 kilograms  or 20 litres max container size - of the following materials are accepted:

  •  Solvents and household cleaners
  • Floor care products
  • Ammonia-based cleaners
  • Pesticides and herbicides
  • Poisons
  • Pool chemicals
  • Hobby chemicals
  • Acids and alkalis
  • Motor fuels

 You can take these items to either a Household Chemical CleanOut event, or to a Community Recycling Centre:

  • Fluorescent globes and tubes
  • Smoke detectors
  • Paint and paint-related products
  • Gas bottles
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Car and household batteries
  • Motor oils and cooking oils

Note: Business-related and commercial quantities of chemicals are not accepted.

Handle and transport chemicals carefully:
  •  Never mix chemicals as this may produce dangerous reactions.
  • Wherever possible keep all chemicals in their original containers.
  • Ensure containers are clearly labelled and well-sealed. If you do not know the contents, label the container 'unknown chemical'.
  • Liquid can leak during transport: wrap containers holding liquids securely in newspaper, place in sturdy plastic bags and then in plastic buckets or trays.
  • Keep household chemicals away from passengers, e.g. in the boot of your car.
