program. CleanOut is a FREE service for the safe disposal of a range of common household
chemicals which could cause harm to human health and the environment if not disposed
The NSW Environment Protection Authority Household Chemical Cleanout Day event is run
by the NSW EPA and Toxfree, and is hosted by Snowy Monaro Regional Council.
