If your home has old or unwanted chemicals that you would like to dispose of, they can be taken along to Sustainability Victoria's FREE household chemical collection day. Sustainability Victoria Household Chemical Collection day is held every year and generally it is conducted on a Saturday, between the hours of 8am & 11am, at Council's Works Depot, Selkirk Dr, Horsham.
Sustainability Victoria's chemical collection is the environmentally safe way for householders to dispose of old and unwanted chemicals at no cost. For more Sustainability Victoria information, visit their website.
The local Grampians Region Waste Management Group may also be of assistance.
Details of the next free household chemical collection day in Horsham are not yet known, but will be available on this website and advertised in local media ahead of time.
Alternatively, items such as spray paint containers, batteries, old fire extinguishers, empty aerosol cans, insect sprays, gas cylinders, etc, can be taken straight to various other collection points throughout the state.
All other general recycling enquiries should be directed to the Municipal Depot on 03 5382 9600.
