Toxic chemicals dropped off on the Household Hazardous collection day are immediately sorted, placed in sealed drums and transported to a specialist waste treatment facility.

Every effort is made to recycle chemicals or use them for other purposes such as energy recovery. As a last resort where chemicals can’t be recycled or reused, some may be stored in secure landfills in accordance with Environment Protection Authority (EPA) Tasmania’s requirements.
