The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) in conjunction with Wingecarribee Shire Council will be accepting unwanted chemicals as part of its annual Chemical CleanOut program on Saturday 16 April at Council’s Moss Vale Depot.
Residents can drop off their unwanted household chemicals – FREE of charge – at Council’s Moss Vale Works Depot, Moss Vale from 9.00am to 3.00pm.
Chemicals that can be dropped off include residential quantities (20kg or 20 litre maximum container) of:
- pesticides and herbicides,
- paints and paint products,
- solvents and household cleaners,
- motor oils and fuels,
- car batteries,
- gas bottles,
- fire extinguishers,
- fluorescent globes and tubes,
- pool and hobby chemicals (ie. photography),
- acids and alkalis,
- poisons, and
- floor care products and ammonia based cleaners
Last year, almost 700 people took advantage of the free service surrendering over 30 tonnes of chemicals on the day.
Council’s Moss Vale Depot can be entered via Parkes Road, Moss Vale.
Council’s Chemical CleanOut is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from Council’s Environment and Waste Levy.
