Detox Your Home

Union House car park, University of Melbourne

Parkville, Victoria 3010

Moving out of student accommodation this November? Dispose of your unwanted cleaning products and cosmetics the safe way at this Detox Your Home event, delivered by Sustainability Victoria in partnership with the University of Melbourne and City of Melbourne.

Safely disposing of household chemicals keeps toxic chemicals out of waterways, and minimises environmental pollution and fire hazards. Chemicals are diverted from landfill, and most are recycled or used for other purposes, such as making energy. Toxic household chemicals that are able to be collected include cleaning products, disinfectants, cooking oil, detergents, nail-polish remover and car care products.

The 'Detox your Home' service is for household chemicals only, and is completely free! Registration is required.

For safety reasons containers larger than 20 litres or 20 kilograms cannot be accepted. Please bring your chemicals in non-returnable containers. This a walk-in event. Vehicles are not permitted within the event service area. Please use on-street parking along Royal Parade or Swanston Street and walk in via Tin Alley.
