Detox your home
Indigo Shire residents can take advantage of this safe, free and easy-to-use service to dispose of common household chemicals without harming health or the environment.
Household chemicals can be dangerous. They can harm your family and your pets, add extra fuel to a house fire, release toxic fumes and pollute the environment for future generations.
It is not safe to throw chemical products out with your regular rubbish collection — the products could explode, ignite, leak or mix with other chemicals. You shouldn't pour them down the drain either, in case they pollute waterways, harming animals and vegetation, contaminating our drinking water supply and making rivers and beaches unsafe for swimming.
The good news is you can reduce the risk of poisoning, environmental pollution and bushfire hazards, as well as improve recycling rates, by dropping off unwanted, highly toxic household chemicals at Wodonga's Detox your Home mobile collection.
- Detox your Home will be in Kane Road Wodonga on 3 September 2016 from 10am to 1pm.
