With the easing of Covid-19 pandemic restrictions in the coming weeks and months, be assured that drumMUSTER operations will continue to operate within each state and territory across Australia. As states and regions re-open, drumMUSTER operations will continue with strict adherence to social distancing and hygiene practices, ensuring best practice for all involved in the drumMUSTER process. This includes those inspecting the drums as well as the public.
While 80% of council collection sites remainad open, the remaining Councils are now preparing for their drumMUSTER inspectors to return to operating collections across Australia, and farmers can be assured that there is a safe and sustainable pathway for recycling of containers and disposal of obsolete agvet chemicals.
For rural communities across Australia, the easing of drought conditions culminating with Covid-19 has put some additional pressures on the agricultural supply chain. This has meant that there has been an extraordinarily large volume of chemicals entering distribution.
drumMUSTER is the National program that has been set up for the collection and recycling of cleaned eligible non returnable crop production and on-farm animal health chemical containers and provides chemical users with a defined route to safely dispose of used chemical containers.
