Transporting your materials safely

Transporting your materials safely to a CleanOut collection is important. Here are some top tips for safe storage and transportation:

  • Ensure containers are clearly labelled and well-sealed. If you do not know the contents, label the container ‘UNKNOWN CHEMICAL’.
  • Wherever possible keep all chemicals in their original containers.
  •  Never mix chemicals as this may produce dangerous reactions.
  •  Liquid can leak during transportation. Wrap old or damaged containers in newspaper, place in a sturdy plastic bag and then in a plastic container or tray.
  •  Keep household chemicals away from passengers e.g. in the boot.

This a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
