drumMUSTER & ChemClear


Agsafe’s ChemClear program is holding a collection in South Australia in April and May 2021. Agvet chemical users can now register their unwanted or obsolete agvet chemicals for collection by visiting the ChemClear website, www.chemclear.org.au or by calling 1800 008 182. Registrations close on 28 February 2021.

ChemClear will contact you directly to advise the location and date of the collection point in your local government area.  If you have registered any Group 2 classified chemicals, you will be provided with a quotation on a per lt/kg basis for the collection and disposal of these products.

When a collection is scheduled in your area ChemClear will contact you and provide the following information:

  • the address of the collection site
  • a date for the collection
  • an appointment time to deliver the chemicals to the collection team

To register your chemicals, please visit: www.chemclear.org.au/register-your-chemical


Council provides all farm chemical users throughout the District with a drum collection service - drumMUSTER. The drumMUSTER collection operates in July and October each year.

This service has been successfully run over the past few years, and enables farm chemical users to return their empty, cleaned, non-returnable, steel and plastic farm chemical containers to the drumMUSTER collection centre at Cummins.

Containers must be:-

  • Triple rinsed
  • Clean & dry (no chemical residue)
  • Declared clean when delivered
  • Lids removed
  • Metal drums should be punctured

Bookings are essential and can be made by contacting the Cummins Council Office and speaking to Works Admin on 8676 0400.
