Missed opportunity with Chemical Clean-Out

Peninsula News readers have missed the opportunity to dispose of unwanted hazardous chemicals at Kincumber tip.

Central Coast Council issued a media release about the Chemical Clean-Out event on Tuesday, February 21, for the clean-out which was held Saturday and yesterday, March 4 and 5.

If readers have chemicals to dispose of, they will now have to go to Bateau Bay next weekend.

The event is being held at the Council's Depot, at the corner of The Entrance and Wyong Rd, on Saturday and Sunday, March 11 and 12.

The Peninsula Residents Association last week decided to ask the council to reinstitute Chemical Clean-Outs on the Peninsula.

Council unit manager Mr Andrew Pearce said he was encouraging residents to responsibly dispose of any unwanted, out-of-date or unused household chemicals that may be sitting in homes, garages and sheds.

"Items such as pesticides, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, fluorescent globes and any unknown chemicals will be accepted for identification and disposal."

For the full list of chemicals that can be dropped off call 131 555 or visit cleanout.com.au.
