Detox Your Home - Household Chemical Collection

Detox your Home Mobile Collection Events

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.

Detox your Home is a safe, FREE and easy-to-use service to dispose of common household chemicals, such as solvents, poisons and cleaning products. Simply register online, turn up on the day with your unwanted items - and we’ll do the rest.

Accepted items

Visit or call 1300 363 744 for a full list of accepted items.

The chemicals collected are recycled or used for other purposes wherever possible. What can’t be recycled or used is safely stored into secure landfills in accordance with Environment Protection Agency (EPA) Victoria requirements.

There are nearby Detox your Home mobile collections held each year.

Upcoming collections:

  • Skye: February 2021 (Frankston City’s annual collection day)

The Detox Your Home mobile collection service is made possible through local councils and the Victorian Government.


Registration is required to manage the traffic flow and avoid queues on the day, which means you can get in and out quickly.

If a Code Red Fire Danger Rating has been declared in the area on collection day, the event will be rescheduled.

Frankston Regional Recycling and Recovery Centre

Unlike the Detox your Home mobile collection service, FRRRC cannot accept toxic household chemicals. However, less toxic items such as light globes and tubes, batteries, motor oil and paint can be dropped off at FRRRC. Charges apply for some items.
