Did you know chemical waste can cause major safety concerns if not disposed of correctly?

Chemicals such as paint and solvents, household cleaning products, bleach or garden and pool chemicals can result in fires in bins and garbage trucks while also potentially creating a safety hazard in the community or for the environment.

Bundaberg Regional Council has a number of methods for disposal of different domestic chemical wastes:

  1. Treatment through the sewer system
  2. Recycling programs (customer drop-off at waste facility)
  3. Treatment before landfilling (customer drop-off at waste facility)
  4. Direct to landfill (household general waste bin)
