Correctly disposing of chemicals and chemical containers reduces the risk of exposure for the people and animals who live and work on your farms. Managing chemicals and chemical containers prevents spills and leaks, avoiding the potential for contaminated soil and groundwater.
Excess or unwanted chemicals can be disposed of via the ChemClear program. For correct disposal, the chemicals need to be registered, then taken to a scheduled collection point for safe removal. See ChemClear for further details on registration and collection events: http://www.chemclear.org.au/
Cleaned agvet chemical containers of up to 205 litres with the DrumMuster logo can be recycled at a DrumMuster collection site. See DrumMuster’s website for information on rinsing standards, eligible containers, and collections sites: http://www.drummuster.org.au/
