Chemical Cleanout - Palerang

18 Aug 2013 - 8:00am - 11:00am

Once a year Palerang Council holds a household chemical waste collection. This is an opportunity for residents to deposit household quantities (less than 20 litres or kilos per type) of potentially hazardous household items. The collection is held in a central location, and residents may deposit their items there.

  • Collect unwanted hazardous items from around your home.

  • Package in secure sealed containers. Never mix different items.

  • Label each container clearly with what is inside. If you don't know, label 'unknown'.

  • Drop items off at the Bungendore Works Depot (100 Ellendon St, Bungendore) and the Braidwood Saleyards (Saleyards Lane, Braidwood). The hours of collection are:
    • Bungendore: 8.00 am - 11.00 am
    • Braidwood: 12.30 pm - 3.30 pm.

The following items will be accepted: pesticides, fungicides, batteries, oxidisers, weed killers, paints and varnishes, household cleaners, fuel, oils, sharps (syringes), poisons, solvents, acids and alkalis, pool chemicals, gas cylinders, medicines, fertilisers and smoke detectors.
