Spring clean at Chemical Clean-Out

Residents have the opportunity to do some spring cleaning, by disposing of unwanted items chemical waste at Council’s Household Chemical Clean-Out event.

The second clean-out day for the year will be held on Saturday 13 October, 9am-3.30pm, at Bankstown Paceway.

Mayor Khal Asfour said these events are always popular because it’s an easy and convenient way of disposing of items that cannot be safely disposed of in household rubbish bins.

"At our last event in February at Campsie, more than 560 residents attended and brought 27 tonnes of chemicals, mostly paints, batteries and gas cylinders," Mayor Asfour said.

Residents can bring up to 20 litres or 20 kilograms of the following household chemicals and items:

  • Solvents and household cleaners;
  • Ammonia-based cleaners;
  • Pesticides and herbicides;
  • Pool chemicals;
  • Motor fuels;
  • Fluorescent globes and tubes;
  • Acids and alkalis;
  • Smoke detectors;
  • Paint and paint-related products;
  • Gas bottles;
  • Fire extinguishers;
  • Car and household batteries; and
  • Oils.

"We’ve been conditioned to storing chemicals in a safe place in our homes, especially when we have small children," Mayor Asfour said. "But we need to remember what the hazards are when we dispose of these chemicals.

"If chemicals are thrown in the bin, they will go to landfill and are toxic and dangerous for workers, our waterways and environment."
