Have you got household chemicals that you need to dispose of?

Strathbogie Shire residents are being urged to ‘Detox your Home’ – a safe, free and easy-to-use service to dispose of common, highly toxic household chemicals without harming your health or the environment.

The household chemical collection program is coming to Mitchell Shire Council’s Seymour Works Depot (behind Seymour Sports & Aquatic Centre) on Saturday 15 June between 10am - 12 noon.

Strathbogie Shire is encouraging residents to make the most of the Seymour event as it is currently the closest collection program for Strathbogie Shire residents to dispose of their household chemicals- like pesticides, detergents and weed killers.

Chemical wastes of any kind cannot be accepted at any of Strathbogie Shire Council’s Waste Transfer Stations, so the collection event occurring in Seymour provides the best opportunity for Strathbogie residents to dispose of their unwanted toxic household chemicals.

Before attending the Seymour event, residents are reminded to check the list of items which can be accepted, by visiting http://www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/You-and-Your-Home/Waste-and-recycling/Detox-your-home/Items-accepted-and-not-accepted or can call 1300 363 744 for further information about the event.

More of Strathbogie Shire will soak up the sunshine than ever before.

Strathbogie Shire Council is on its way to its target of zero net emissions by 2025 with the installation of 43kW on four key buildings across the municipality this month, kicking off with a 33kW installation at Council Offices in Euroa.

In addition to solar, Council will be undertaking key energy efficiency works including de-lamping and LED installations to its facilities.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Cr Amanda McClaren said it was the first step in a major rollout of corporate greenhouse efficiencies across council-run buildings, which will include community recreation reserves, libraries, and halls and was partly funded by Sustainability Victoria’s Local Government Energy Saver initiative.

“These installations will see us cutting over $36,000 per annum in utilities, and avoiding emitting 146 tonnes CO2-e each year, which is substantial,” Cr McClaren said.

“Council intends to continue this good work, and continue to follow up on a number of energy audits it undertook last year.”

“This is just one element of Council’s long-term low-carbon strategy. We are looking to secure the future of our shire, particularly with the development of the Sustainable Strathbogie 2030 Strategy which sets out a blueprint for a resilient, well adapted, low carbon future.”

Owner of BD North East Electrics, Marcus “bulldog” Mackrell, who was selected as the installer, said he was pleased Council was hiring a local business for the installation.

“It really makes a difference when people see leadership from their Council, and they’ve been great to work with,” Mr Mackrell said.

“There’s been a lot of solar going up in the shire lately. The government rebates and the Bogie Bulk Buy have really made a difference to solar business locally.”
