Protect Hawkesbury Water Bodies through Eco Friendly Cleaning
Every year, Hawkesbury City Council holds a Chemical Cleanout event. It is a special day when residents get to reduce waste and pollution by safely disposing of any potentially hazardous household chemicals. Household cleaners and solvents are among these hazardous chemicals. In fact, they may be more hazardous than other chemicals because people use them regularly to clean their clothes, homes and when taking showers. You can either reduce your usage of these products, or switch to green cleaning products to protect Hawkesbury’s environment.
