Hazardous waste and chemicals

Unwanted, toxic household chemicals can harm your family and your pets, add fuel to a house fire and release toxic fumes. They can pollute the environment now and into the future so it's important to dispose of them correctly. Please do not put these chemicals in you red bin so we can keep them out of landfill.

Items that cannot be disposed of in your kerbside bins can be dropped off at the Melton Recycling Facility (MRF) for free all year round.

Detox your home

The State Government runs a program throughout the year for the safe disposal of many chemicals, poisons, glues and solvents. Each council hosts one collection per year, but anyone can use any event across Victoria. Visit Sustainability Victoria for days and times.
