Drum Muster

drumMUSTER is the National program that has been set up for the collection and recycling of cleaned eligible non returnable crop production and on-farm animal health chemical containers and provides chemical users with a defined route to safely dispose of used chemical containers. 

drumMUSTER is the single biggest environmental program ever undertaken jointly by farmers/end chemical users, Local Government and the crop production and animal health industries drumMUSTER’s belief is that the responsible use of chemicals, and waste management initiatives means a cleaner environment for the community as a whole and adds to Australia’s clean and green image. 

Annually, Council conducts drumMUSTER collections across the shire to enable chemical container and hazardous material collections.
