Camden residents show off chemical waste responsibility

Hundreds of residents dropped off more than 24 tonnes of chemical waste at Camden Council’s annual Chemical CleanOut last weekend, preventing the waste from entering local landfill.  

The annual event gives residents the chance to dispose of their unwanted hazardous chemicals  around their homes or garages including household cleaners, pesticides and herbicides, poisons,  pool chemicals and much more.  

Mayor of Camden, Ashleigh Cagney (pictured), said it was fantastic to see so many people take  advantage of the free event.  

“I’m proud that Camden Council is committed to helping our residents dispose of their waste  correctly,” she said.  

“It’s important as a community that we continue doing the right thing to help keep our environment  in pristine condition.  

“As always, I have received some great feedback from the community about the Chemical  CleanOut and how great it was.”  

Council’s Community Recycling Centre in Narellan provides residents  with a free and convenient way to drop off their household problem waste for recycling.
