Bourke Road, Alexandria – 24th August 2019. The City of Sydney’s Household Chemical CleanOut at Alexandra Canal Depot is part of the NSW Government program run by the NSW Environmental Protection Authority to provide a free service to dispose of common household chemicals. Any leftover chemicals you have at home, including paints, solvents, pesticides and even cleaning products, should not be put in your household bins.  If not disposed of correctly, these potentially hazardous materials could cause harm to human health and the environment. Pouring substances down the drain means they can end up in Sydney Harbour, endangering precious marine life. Many chemicals collected on the day are re-used or recycled. Items such as unwanted paints can be used as an alternative fuel for cement kilns and residual gas removed from gas bottles for industrial use.

Time to get rid of those old chemicals

Have some old and unwanted chemical materials lying around the house? Now is the time to prepare to dispose of them at the annual Chemical CleanOut next month. The 2021 Chemical CleanOut will be held on Sunday, February 14, 9am-3.30pm, at council’s works depot, located at 5 Millwood Avenue, Narellan.Read more »
