Timeline PhotosdrumMUSTER on farm collection is approaching and bookings are now open.
On farm processing by the contractor is available for farmers with over 600 drums. If you have over 600 empty clean drums on your property, please make a booking on 07 4671 7400 or you can phone your drumMUSTER representative for Southern Queensland, Colin Hoey, on 0428 964 576 to be included in the muster. Only properties which are booked in will be on the collection schedule.
Containers must be “Residue free with ALL lids removed” (visit www.drummuster.org.au for a list of eligible containers).
Anyone with less than 600 drums can either get together with a neighbor to accumulate enough drums to access the “on farm” service, or deliver to the Council sites at Goondiwindi, Inglewood and Texas.
The Goondiwindi Tip receives drums during opening hours. Inglewood and Texas Works depots collect by booking an appointment on 0427 574 288. Drums can be delivered at any time of year at these centres, not just during the annual collection.
There are also two (2) other drumMUSTER programs conducted in partnership with local school communities at Kioma State School & Yelarbon P & C. For Kioma please contact Will Rae on 4677 6155 or 0419 665 562. For Yelarbon please contact the school or Will Officer on 0428 457 883.
Whilst at the University of New England, AU Conference on #Agvet Chemicals, we came across one of the products that #drumMUSTER containers are recycled into. This bar chair is utilised in concreting applications to support reinforcing bar and mesh.
Other #recycled products that drumMUSTER containers are turned into are wheelie bins, irrigation pipes, street furniture and fence pickets.
