Unwanted household chemicals can be difficult to get rid of but the annual chemical collection provides residents with an opportunity to clean out their garages and dispose of waste products in an environmentally friendly way.
Lithgow Council, in conjunction with the NSW EPA and NetWaste, provides a free chemical cleanout once a year. This years service is scheduled for Sunday 22nd November from 8am – 4pm at Lithgow Council Works Depot, Mort Street, Lithgow.
Lithgow Council Mayor Councillor Maree Statham said today “Most households end up with waste products such as paints, batteries, fluorescent tubes and cleaning chemicals. The annual chemical cleanout is a great opportunity to dispose of these items in an environmentally friendly manner.”
The following items will be accepted:
From your home: Solvents & household cleaners, floor care products, ammonia based cleaners, fluorescent globes & tubes.
From your car: Batteries, motor oils & fluids.
From the garage: Paint, pesticides, herbicides, poisons, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, pool chemicals, acids & alkalis.
“I urge residents to take advantage of this free service” concluded the Mayor.
