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.

You can either reduce your usage of these products, or switch to green cleaning products to protect Hawkesbury’s environment.
