The correct way to dispose of potentially hazardous chemicals is through the CleanOut program. CleanOut is a FREE service for the safe disposal of a range of common household chemicals which could cause harm to human health and the environment if not disposed correctly.
CleanOut events are held at various locations throughout NSW at specified dates throughout the year. See the locations and dates below or contact your local council for more information. Locations and dates are subject to change, so please check the schedule prior to attending your next event.
Inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the Environment Line 131 555.
Locations and dates are subject to change, so please check prior to drop-off. Materials are not accepted outside advertised times and patrons are advised against illegal dumping.

Paintback is an initiative designed to divert unwanted paint and packaging away from landfill.
This is the first time the cleanout days have specifically targeted trade painters and provided an opportunity to dispose of higher quantities of paint.
In the past only 20 litres could be disposed of, which has now been extended to 100 litres per customer. We encourage local tradies to take this up and dispose of those leftover or old tins of paint they aren’t ever going to use.
