What can I do with empty chemical containers?

drumMUSTER is the national program for the collection and recycling of empty, cleaned, non-returnable, crop production and on-farm animal health chemical containers. Many councils act as the collection agency for these containers and organise an annual or bi-annual collection of empty and rinsed chemical containers.

The containers must be:

  • pressure rinsed
  • triple rinsed, or
  • fully cleaned with a mechanical rinsing device.

This should be done immediately after emptying the container, before any residue has a chance to dry and harden.

Collection Site: George Town Refuse Site, Mount George Road, George Town 7253.

Collection of drums can take place any day during tip operating hours.

George Town Council participates in the drumMUSTER collection program. Contact the Council on 6382 8800 for details.
