CITY of Greater Bendigo is holding a free Detox Your Home service on October 5.
The service is a chance for residents to safely dispose of unwanted pesticides, cleaning products and weed killer that may be stored around their homes.
Mayor Lisa Ruffell said the service was a safe way to detox a home.
“Household chemicals can be dangerous if they are not used as directed or disposed of properly so anyone who has any chemicals stored at their home should take advantage of this opportunity," she said.
She said the collected material would be treated and disposed of safely.
Residents interested must register prior to the day, contact 1800 353 233 or go to www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/DetoxyourHome
