Council operates four DrumMUSTER collection sites. The compounds are located at Hillston Landfill, Goolgowi Transfer Station, Rankins Springs Landfill and Carrathool Landfill.
drumMUSTER 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.
drumMUSTER 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.
drumMUSTER product is recycled into useful everyday items such as street signs, irrigation piping, plant stakes and outdoor furniture.
