Council hosts a free chemical cleanout day at Penrith every year. The event is run by the EPA.
Pack your old household cleaners & chemicals, pool chemicals, batteries, gas bottles and oils in the boot of your car. The friendly staff will unload for you and the items collected will be disposed of safely and correctly.
