Detergent bottles are made of plastic so can be rinsed out and thrown in your yellow-lidded recycle bin. Remove the lid and throw it in the same bin separately. The bottle and lid should be separated as they are made out of two different types of plastic.
Eligible, pre-cleaned agricultural and veterinary chemical drums and containers can be recycled through Agsafe's drumMUSTER program. drumMUSTER provides an easy, environmentally-friendly way of disposing of empty farming chemical drums and containers across rural Australia.
Burdekin Shire Council's runs multiple drummuster collections sites.
Once the drums and containers have been collected, they are recycled into re-usable products such as wheelie bins, road signs, fence posts and bollards.
See the drumMUSTER page for further details.
