Highlights

This service is for household chemicals only.

  • We don’t accept paint, fluorescent lights and batteries.
  • The maximum acceptable weight or size for any single container is 20 kilograms or 20 litres.
  • Decanting isn’t permitted, so bring chemicals in disposable, clearly labelled containers. If you don’t know what’s inside, label the item as ‘unknown’.
  • View the full list of items accepted and not accepted.
  • We don’t accept paint, fluorescent lights and batteries. To dispose of these items see a-z-guide-to-waste-and-recycling

On the day, follow these safety procedures:

  • Put your clearly labelled items in the empty boot of your car or ute tray.
  • Have your confirmation email available for our event staff to confirm your Order number on arrival. 
  • Only one person per vehicle can attend – you won’t need to unload anything yourself.
  • Drive-in and follow the event signage and directions. 
  • Stay in your car and our trained chemists will do the rest.
  • Remember to follow all current public health measures at the time, including wearing a face covering and staying home if you feel unwell.

For public health measures, visit the Department of Health and Human Services website.
