The annual household chemical cleanout is on again, providing residents with the opportunity to clean out chemicals from their home for disposal in an environmentally friendly way.
Most households end up with waste products such as paints, batteries, fluorescent tubes and assorted chemicals that aren’t suitable for disposal at domestic waste facilities. 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 “The annual chemical cleanout is a great opportunity to dispose of chemicals in an environmentally friendly manner and I urge residents to take advantage of this free service.”
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.
