Empty drums in cage

drumMUSTER is a national environmental program for the collection and recycling of empty, clean, non-returnable crop production and on-farm animal health chemical containers. It is undertaken jointly by farmers/chemical users, local government and the crop production and animal health industries. 

All you are required to do is double rinse your containers so they are free of any chemical residue, making sure to take the caps off, then deliver them to one of our collection sites across the region. Steel drums must also have a hole in the bottom (to drain any liquid waste).

For loads of more than 100, it is necessary that you call us and book a time to come in. Our gatehouse operators need to check every container and will need to roster a time for large loads.
