Do you have an excess or unused expired pesticides or any chemicals? Leaving them around poses a potential threat to children and pets. Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) can contaminate groundwater, drinking water and soil, and the improper disposal of these can create landfill build up and pollution.
Thankfully, the Western Australian Local Government Association (WALGA) had administered and funded the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program. It aims to properly dispose or recycle HHW.

Householders can drop off household hazardous waste at any of the following locations:
