Council's most recent Detox your Home drop-off event took place on Saturday 14 November 2020. All future collection events in Hobsons Bay will be advertised here.

For other Detox your Home events across Victoria please visit Sustainability Victoria.

For permanent drop off locations in Hobsons Bay and surrounds, please see a comprehensive list of recycling options for other household waste

For more information on buying, handling and storing household chemicals, see the Safe handling of toxic chemicals guide.


Disposing of chemical products in the regular kerbside garbage bin is dangerous and should be avoided as products can leak, mix, ignite or explode.

Residents should not pour chemicals down domestic drains as they can pollute waterways, harm wildlife, contaminate drinking water and make beaches and rivers unsafe for swimming.
