Household Chemical Cleanout Is Nearly Here!

Households across the Warrumbungle Shire are being encouraged start preparing to take part in the upcoming Household Chemical Cleanout 2022.

The Household Chemical Cleanout is taking place in May 2022 with the collection scheduled for 1:00pm till 4:00pm on Thursday 5 May 2022, at the Coonabarabran Landfill on Baradine Road.

“This annual event is an opportunity for people across the Shire to safely dispose of potentially hazardous chemicals around their homes,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan. “Now is a great time to start sorting out and cleaning sheds and garages to see if you have any unwanted left-over chemicals.”

“This chemical cleanout event offers residents a great way to responsibly dispose of any unwanted left-over chemicals free of charge.”

“The Household Chemical Cleanout is a good reminder to have a look and clear out the kitchen cupboards, garden sheds and laundry shelves, and remove toxic products from your home, disposing of them in a safe way,” said Cr Doolan.

“Unwanted household products such as paint, gas cylinders and batteries can all be dropped off through this collection. As well as this, more unusual toxic chemicals such as acids and cyanide-based products and flares can also be dropped off. These are high risk products and they need to be handled and disposed of correctly.”

“Particular care should be taken to ensure all chemicals are transported safely to the collection centre and that this is a free service for household quantities only,” Cr Doolan explained. 

Warrumbungle Shire Council is one of the 19 Net Waste member council areas in the Central West Region who are holding a household chemical cleanout collection.
