The ChemClear is a program for the collection of unwanted, out of date, unlabelled and unknown agricultural and veterinary chemicals.
Primary producers in the Burdekin will be able to dispose of any unwanted chemicals in June when ChemClear comes to town. It is essential to register now or risk waiting for the next collection, which may not be for another couple of years.
The national program is an excellent way for farmers and graziers to dispose of rural chemicals in a safe and responsible manner.
Farmers and landowners can register their old chemicals online or by phoning the hotline before 28 April, 2017, and registered persons will be notified of collection locations in their council area in May.
Chemical containers displaying the drumMUSTER logo are eligible for free collection and known as Group 1 chemicals.
Agvet chemical containers without the logo or are unlabelled, expired, mixed or from non-participating manufacturers, are designated Group 2 products, incurring a fee per lt/kg for disposal. A quote will be provided when booking Group 2 chemicals.
