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.
Visit sustainability.vic.gov.au/detoxyourhome or call 1300 363 744 for a full list of accepted items
The collected items are recycled for recovery and diverted from landfill.
There are nearby Detox your Home mobile collections held each year. Upcoming collections include:
- Dandenong - 9am-3pm Saturday 16 June 2018
- Mornington - 9am-2pm Saturday 24 November 2018
- Skye - 9am-3pm Saturday 2 February 2019 (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.
