Chemical Drums Drum Muster

A chemical container collection program has racked up an impressive milestone in the Riverland.

Earlier this year the Drum Muster program run by AGSAFE collected its 35 millionth container in Renmark.

The Renmark-Paringa council has teamed up with the program since the year 2000 and locally has collected over 150,000 drums.

National Program Manager for Drum Muster Allan McGannsaid “The program continues to provide a responsible disposal and recycling option for all agvet chemical users”

The recycled plastic is then used to make items such as concrete bar stools, irrigation pipes, bollards and street furniture.
