*Detox Your Home - special chemical collection - Reservoir - Saturday 14 December 2013*

Do you need to dispose of hazardous household chemicals? Chemical products can be dangerous – they can harm your family and pets, add fuel to a house fire, release toxic fumes and damage the environment. Please do not put them out with your council bins or pour them down the drain.

Instead, register for the Detox Your Home chemical collection in Reservoir on Saturday 14 December 2013 from 8.00am to 4.00pm. Detox Your Home is a FREE service to dispose of household chemicals safely and easily without harming human health or the environment.

To register for this event visit: www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/detoxmobile or call 1800 353 233. The collection address will be provided upon registration.
