  • drumMUSTER
    drumMUSTER collects and recycles used containers for crop production and on-farm animal health chemicals. Eligible non-returnable, metal and plastic containers are cleaned of residue by farmers and delivered to one of more than 780 collection sites across Australia.

    Around 24 million containers (about 29,000 tonnes of materials) have been collected since the program began in 1999, delivering benefits to both the industry and the broader Australian public.

    drumMUSTER is funded by a levy of four cents per litre or kilogram of participating agvet chemicals, which is managed by AgStewardship Australia. Daily operation of the program is delivered by Agsafe Limited on behalf of AgStewardship Australia.

  • ChemClear
    ChemClear collects and disposes of unwanted crop production and veterinary chemicals. It provides a safe and convenient method of disposal for chemicals that may have accumulated on properties over many years, helping to protect the environment and public safety.

    The focus is obsolete chemicals which may become unwanted because they are out of date or superseded; are no longer used as a result of changes in cropping and animal management practices or regulation; or through illegal dumping or when a property changes hands.

    The ChemClear program has collected close to 411,000 litres/kg of hazardous Group 1 and Group 2 agricultural chemicals since it began in 2003.

    ChemClear is funded by levies collected under the drumMUSTER® program. It is delivered by Agsafe Limited on behalf of AgStewardship Australia.
