Household Hazardous Waste

Household chemicals can be dangerous if they are not stored or disposed of safely. Green Industries SA (formerly Zero Waste SA) undertakes free household hazardous waste drop-off days to help you dispose of your unwanted chemicals in an environmentally safe way.

Licensed professional waste management contractors will set up temporary drop-off points in metropolitan and country areas of the State (refer to timetable). Householders will be asked to deliver their unwanted chemicals to the drop-off points.

You can also take items to the household hazardous waste depotdownload the flyer for details.

Before you bring items to the depot, check this flyer for other disposal options for common items like paint, oil, batteries and light globes.

The depot is open from 9am-12pm on the first Tuesday of every month.
