Detox Your Home

Detox Your Home

Permanent Drop-off Site

Warrnambool residents can safely dispose of paint, all types of household batteries and compact fluorescent lamps at  Cleanaway at 355 Koroit Street.

The service is free and one of a network of permanent drop-off sites, which the Victorian Government funds.

The permanent drop-off site in Koroit Street complements the Detox your Home household chemical collection program. The Detox Your Home collection comes to Warrnambool once every year.

The permanent drop-off sites enable Victorian householders to dispose of more commonly used, low toxicity products - paint, household batteries and CFLs - throughout the year; these products will no longer be accepted at the Detox your Home mobile collections.

Visit the Sustainability Victoria website for a list of operational permanent drop-off sites and upcoming Detox your Home mobile collections.

Permanent drop-off sites and Detox your Home mobile collections are free services for all Victorian householders, administered by Sustainability Victoria in collaboration with local councils and funded by the Victorian landfill levy.

The products collected through both services are recycled for recovery and diverted from landfill.


Annual Household Chemical Collection

Warrnambool City Council residents are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to rid their homes of unwanted household chemicals for free.

Funded through the Sustainability Fund and organised by Sustainability Victoria in partnership with Warrnambool City Council, the Detox Your Home program helps residents dispose of their old and unwanted chemicals in an environmentally responsible way.

List of accepted items

Paint, all batteries, fluorescent tubes and CFLs are no longer accepted at the mobile event as they are accepted year round at the permanent facility at Cleanaway (Statewide Recycling), 355 Koroit St.
