City of Canterbury Bankstown’s Household Chemical Collection events held twice a year. The NSW Environmental Protection Agency provides these free Household Chemical Collection services for all NSW residents. This project is a
Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
You can also drop off your old household chemicals, any time of the year, at one of the many permanent
Community Recycling Centres.
If you miss Council’s Household Chemical Collections, don’t worry, there are a number of existing industry supported programs to collect left over paint, used lead-acid batteries, old medicines and other hazardous household materials.
