Chemicals discarded responsibly

Chemical Cleanout

Hundreds of residents dropped off more than 24 tonnes of chemical waste at Camden Council’s annual Chemical CleanOut over the weekend, preventing the waste from entering landfill.

The annual event gives residents the chance to dispose of their unwanted hazardous chemicals around their homes or garages including household cleaners, pesticides and herbicides, poisons, pool chemicals and much more.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Ashleigh Cagney, said it was fantastic to see so many people take advantage of the free event.

“I’m proud that Camden Council is committed to helping our residents dispose of their waste correctly,” she said.

“It’s important as a community that we continue doing the right thing to help keep our environment in pristine condition.

“As always, I have received some great feedback from the community about the Chemical CleanOut and how great it was.”

Council’s Community Recycling Centre (CRC) at 5 Millwood Avenue, Narellan provides residents with a free and convenient way to drop off their household problem waste for recycling.
