Household Hazardous Waste Temporary Collection Days

There are a number of hazardous items in your home which must not go in your kerbside collection bins. Safely dispose of your unwanted household chemicals and hazardous materials for free at one of the following Household Hazardous Waste Temporary Collection Days.
