David Speller: Storing and Disposing of Toxic Household Items | On the House #10

Have you ever looked at that mystery substance in the back of your garage and wondered if it would be okay to just flush it down the drain? Or worse, are you worried about what would happen if your kid found it and wanted to drink it?

On this episode of On The House: Household Management Insights Podcast, host Gabriella Joustra is joined by David Speller. He has been with Sustainability Victoria since 2012, initially running the agency’s ResourceSmart Schools program, which helps Victorian schools embed sustainability in everything they do. David is now leading the Detox Your Home program, offering Victorian householders a free and safe way to dispose of hazardous waste.

Sit tight as David explains how to store toxic household items and how you should dispose of these dangerous substances. He also shares unexpectedly toxic household items, their alternatives, and what you should do if you, your children, or your pets accidentally consume something they shouldn’t.
