Hazardous waste

There are a lot of products that are used around the home that are classed as hazardous substances. A hazardous substance is generally defined as any substance that is explosive, flammable, corrosive or toxic. These products need to be stored, used and disposed of correctly, otherwise they can potentially harm your health and the environment. Common household products that may include hazardous substances are:

  • cleaning fluids – bleaching agents, oven and drain cleaners
  • solvents – mineral turpentine, methylated spirits, paint thinners
  • adhesives – especially those containing solvents
  • garden chemicals – herbicides, fungicides and insecticides
  • pool chemicals
  • dyes – textile and hair dyes
  • stored fuels – petrol, LPG, diesel and oil
  • old gas cylinders
  • car batteries and antifreeze
  • aerosols.

Disposing of hazardous substance

  • If you have unwanted household hazardous substances you may be able to dispose of it at the Transfer Station on Lincoln Street. 
  • check the original container for instructions on how to dispose of the substance safety.
  • don't pour unwanted chemicals down the sink, storm water drain or onto the ground.
