Detox Your Home

Detox Your Home is a free, safe way to dispose of unwanted household chemicals from your home, shed, or garage.

The program is delivered by the Victorian Government through Sustainability Victoria. It safely disposes of and recycles toxic household chemicals, keeping them out of landfill.

Mobile collections

Detox Your Home runs a program of mobile collections all over Victoria.

These events are free and held on a Saturday, though you must register for some locations.

With your safety in mind, Detox Your Home events are now drive-through and contactless, supported by a COVIDSafe plan.

Find out more about Detox Your Home locations and registration or call 1300 363 744.
