Chance to detox your home

By Meagan Marsh

People are invited to detox their home by ditching harmful chemicals this February.

Teaming up with Sustainability Victoria, Frankston Council is providing people with a safe dumping zone to discard unwanted pesticides, detergents and weed killers for Detox Your Home day on February 1.

People can bring along their unwanted liquids and sprays to be collected at an address at Skye between 8am and 3pm.

Last year, the event saw more the 235 households flush out a whopping 6.8 tonnes of chemical products, which were all diverted from landfill. Mayor Sandra Mayer said that common house hold chemicals could add fuel to house fires, release toxic fumes into the environment and also harm family members and pets.

‘If you put chemicals out with regular rubbish collection they could explode, leak or mix with other chemicals’ she said.

‘Pouring chemicals down the drain is very dangerous and can pollute waterways, contaminate drinking water supplies or making rivers and beaches unsuitable for swimming.’
