    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.
