A ‘chemical clean out’ day has been organised this Sunday, the 2nd of March at Kembla Grange Racecourse car park between 9am and 3:30pm, by the NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change. You can properly dispose of all your household chemical nasties here for free – stuff like pesticides, herbicides, paints, batteries and CFL (florescent) light globes.
The previous house owners left some pesticides, paints and other nasties at our place. We did ask them to dispose of them – and they did by placing them in the usual domestic waste bin. The legacy we are leaving future generations with our huge garbage tips is bad enough, without making them toxic as well! So we pulled them out of the bin and have been waiting for this day! The racehorse car park is on the Princes Highway at Kembla Grange. There's also another one coming up at Bellambi Point Sports Field car park (Bott Drive entry), on Saturday the 31 May, between 9am and 3:30pm. Check out www.cleanout.com.au for more info.
