Eurobodalla residents can rid their homes of unwanted chemicals for free this month.
The Eurobodalla Shire Council will run its annual Household Chemical Cleanout in Moruya and Batemans Bay on September 23 and 24, when shire residents can take unwanted chemicals to designated drop-off points.
Chemicals for disposal could include pesticides, gas bottles, paints and varnishes.
Council’s waste minimisation officer Belinda Wagner said it was a opportunity for residents to safely dispose of harmful chemicals not normally accepted at local waste management facilities.
“You can take paints, fungicides, household batteries, oxidisers, weed killers, household cleaners, fuel, compact fluorescent light globes, oils, syringes, poisons, acids and alkalis, pool chemicals, gas cylinders, medicines, fertilisers and smoke detectors to the collection venues,” Ms Wagner said.
“Asbestos, explosives, clinical waste and radioactive materials will not, however, be accepted.”
