Household chemical collections

Household chemicals are found in products we use at home and in the garden, such as:  

  • cleaning products 
  • weed killer
  • oil
  • cosmetics

How do I dispose of household chemicals?

You can dispose of them for free at a ‘Detox your Home’ collection point. Kingston hosts a ‘Detox your Home’ collection point in various locations each year. Visit Sustainability Victoria for event dates, locations and more information.

What about paint, batteries and other toxic waste?

You can take them to permanent drop-off site. The closest site to Kingston is Bayside Waste and Recycling Center.

For paint, you can also use a paint hardener. It turns water-based paints into solid waste. You can then add it to your landfill bin.
