It’s time for a chemical clean out!

6 August 2019

Gunnedah Shire Council and Northern Inland Regional Waste will hold the Annual Chemical CleanOut day on August 31.

Now is the time to clean out your household chemicals in preparation for a free chemical collection at Gunnedah Waste Management Facility Community Recycling Facility (CRC).

Gunnedah Shire Council Manager Waste Sheridan Cameron said this was an opportunity to get rid of the chemicals that could be accumulating in your shed.

“We encourage residents to drop off their household cleaners, garden, pool and hobby chemicals and household poisons on the CleanOut day,” she said.

“We also encourage residents to drop off their problem wastes such as fluorescent globes and tubes, car and household batteries, motor oils and fluids, paint, gas bottles and fire extinguishers at the Gunnedah Community Recycling Centre. Residents have access to this facility all year round.

“Household quantities will be accepted.

“This is a great chance to get rid of those problem wastes safely and responsibly.”

Items can be dropped off at the Gunnedah Waste Management Facility Community Recycling Facility at 418 Quia Road between 9am and 4pm on August 31, Gunnedah.
