drumMUSTER and ChemClear

 

drum MUSTER and ChemClear are important industry stewardship programs that are part of the Industry Waste Reduction Scheme (IWRS). Agsafe Limited is contracted by AgStewardship Australia who manage the levies collected under the IWRS.

The IWRS is funded by a levy on eligible non-returnable farm chemical containers over 1 litre or kilogram in content from participating chemical manufacturers.

drum MUSTER is the national program for the collection and recycling of empty, cleaned, non-returnable metal and plastic agvet chemical containers.

Chemical users throughout Australia are encouraged to deliver their empty, cleaned containers for inspection and acceptance at their local drumMUSTER collection site at one of over 700 drumMUSTER sites nationally. 

drum MUSTER product is recycled into useful everyday items such as street signs, irrigation piping, plant stakes and outdoor furniture.

drum MUSTER provides:

  • an environmentally responsible solution for chemical users to the problem of disposing their empty chemical containers;
  • helps property owners to keep their property clean of potential contamination;
  • encourages good farming practice and meets Quality Assurance obligations; and
  • supports the preservation of the wider environment.

ChemClear® is the national program for the collection and disposal of unwanted currently registered agvet chemicals.  The objective of the program is to minimise the accumulation of unwanted agvet chemicals held in storage which may create potential risks to the environment, public health and trade.

There are two categories of agvet chemicals ChemClear® collects:

Group 1 chemicals are currently registered products manufactured by participating companies signed to the Industry Waste Reduction Agreement.  These products are collected free of charge.

Group 2 chemicals are products manufactured by non participating companies, or, deregistered, unknown, mixed or out of date products.  A per litre/kilogram fee for disposal applies.

Registrations are essential and can be made at http://www.chemclear.com.au/ or 1800 008 182
