In 2012, 75% of Australian households disposed of at least one potentially hazardous household item. The use of harmful chemicals is not just confined to industry application. Almost every household across the country will have some form of hazardous material lurking under the kitchen sink, in the garage or the garden shed. At the point when these chemicals are no longer required, Toxfree has the solution.

 

What can you do?

Toxfree offers a service for the collection and disposal of hazardous household chemicals. Disposing of hazardous household chemicals is achievable throughout our network of national facilities. Through a combination of mobile collection events to permanent facilities, householders can confidently deposit their unwanted items and drive away with the confidence that their waste will be managed with the utmost respect for the environment and surrounding community.
Specialist equipment is provided to cope with the collection of small items handed in by the public. Typical wastes are oil, paint, solvents, pesticides, cleaners, batteries, acids, alkalis, pharmaceuticals, pool chemicals, brake fluid, coolant, aerosols and photographic chemicals.

All items are received by experienced operators specifically trained to understand the complexity of waste types and packages. The sorting is performed by industrial chemists who segregate the various waste types into compatible types for transport to the Toxfree disposal facility.
