drumMUSTER provides Australian agricultural and veterinary chemical users with a recycling pathway for eligible empty agvet chemical containers.

As at 01/07/2022 Wongan Hills refuse site users have collected 12598 drums since inception.

Inspection of containers at collection points is necessary to ensure that containers can be safely recycled.

  • There must be no chemical residue on the inside or the outside of the container, including the thread and cap.  If there is any chemical residue visible when delivering your containers these drums will be rejected.
  • After rinsing your chemical container it should be left to dry with the cap off which will aid in the drying process.
  • The threads of the container opening must be free of residue and although the cap should not be replaced on the container, it may be brought separately to the collection if clean.
  • Your container should have the labels on to provide inspectors with identification of the container being handled.
  • A signed statement by the farmer or chemical user at the point of the collection provides drumMUSTER with evidence that the container has been rinsed.
  • If your container is rejected, the inspector will request that your container is taken home, properly cleaned and returned for recycling in your next delivery.

The drumMUSTER containers are collected and transported by an approved team of processors and delivered to materials recovery centres where they are recycled into items such as wheelie bins, fence posts and garden stakes.

Disposing of empty agvet chemical containers in the right way is crucial to the reputation and sustainability of the agricultural industry in Australia. By using the drumMUSTER recycling program you can turn your unwanted containers into useful, sustainable products rather than having them placed into landfill or building up on your farm.

drumMUSTER provides a full cradle to grave waste cycle for agvet chemical containers, enabling the re-use of the recycled plastic and steel.
