The ChemClear Program, established in 2003, is a national chemical collection and disposal service for agricultural and veterinary chemicals that have become unwanted or surplus to requirements.
ChemClear is a non-profit, non-government, industry based scheme.
Hobby farmers and primary producers should utilise this service to ensure good farm management practices and cleaner, safer land use practices.
DrumMUSTER is a national program for the collection and recycling of eligible, cleaned non-returnable crop production and on-farm animal health chemical containers. The program started in 1999.
Persons wishing to safely dispose of such containers should ensure these are empty, triple rinsed and delivered to the nearest drumMUSTER/local council collection centre.
The EPA provides advice on handling and disposal of burnt or damaged chemicals, for example bushfires.
