You can safely clean out old and unwanted laundry, hobby, home and garden chemicals and bring them for safe and free disposal at the Burnie Waste Management Centre.

The Cradle Coast Waste Management Group (CCWMG) has organised this event as a free service for residents.

Items accepted at this events include:

  • solvents and household cleaners;
  • floor care products;
  • ammonia-based cleaners;
  • pesticides and herbicides;
  • poisons;
  • pool chemicals;
  • hobby chemicals; and
  • acids and alkalis. 

Unused chemicals pose a risk in landfill and are not permitted in kerbside recycling.

These free events are the best way to dispose of household chemicals that are no longer needed or are beyond their use by date.

Please note:

  • No early or late drop-offs can be accepted. Residents are encouraged to talk with neighbours or friends to arrange shared delivery if unable to attend at the scheduled times.
  • Individual items brought for disposal must be no larger than 20 kilograms or 20 litres each.

    The following items are NOT included in this free special service -
    • motor oil,
    • asbestos,
    • pharmaceuticals,
    • farm vet chemicals,
    • fire extinguishers,
    • ammunition and explosives, and
    • chemicals from commercial businesses.

    Contact council customer service for disposal advice for these items.

These household hazardous waste events are made possible by a waste levy recovered at three council-owned landfills in North West Tasmania.

All levy funds are reinvested by the Cradle Coast Waste Management Group in services across the region to reduce landfill waste and improve the recovery of re-usable materials.
