What will happen to the items I leave behind in my house?

If you are taking part in the ACT Government’s Buyback Program and surrender your property through this program the following will occur to items you leave behind:

  • As part of the security arrangements for surrendered properties, fixtures, fittings and other contents left in the house will be marked (by a paint or dye) to render them invaluable and reduce the incentive for people to illegally gain access to the property;
  • The Taskforce will dispose of any items left in homes as contaminated waste through the demolition program.
