ChemClear is an end-of-life product stewardship program fostered by Agsafe for the safe disposal of agvet chemicals.
The environmentally-friendly program, which supports the safe disposal of agricultural and veterinary chemicals, travels throughout Australia collecting unwanted products from farmers who no longer need them.
Farmers end up with leftover product they cannot reuse and ChemClear works with the State Government to help farmers fund collections of unlabelled, unregistered or unknown chemicals.
Chemicals become unwanted in a number of ways. Property owners may inherit chemicals when they buy land, others switch crops, while some buy specific-use chemicals to manage one-off pest events.
Registered users will be contacted with dates and locations for local collections in shire council jurisdictions.
