New Zealand EPA welcomes Consumer guide to domestic chemical disposal

A new guide to help protect New Zealanders from hazardous domestic chemicals has been released by Consumer New Zealand, with the support of the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA).

EPA Chief Executive Dr Allan Freeth says: “Kiwis have been asking us how they should dispose of old and unwanted home and garden chemicals. It’s among the most commonly-asked questions from visitors to our Safer Homes regional events.

“Almost everyone has unwanted or leftover chemicals in sheds and garages across New Zealand. Left to accumulate they can pose a risk to children, pets and the environment if they’re not disposed of safely.
