Changes for drumMUSTER in Western Australia

Published: 01-04-2016

Long serving drumMUSTER Regional Consultant Bevan Henderson recently announced his resignation from his role with the program effective from 31 March 2016.

Bevan was instrumental in establishing the drumMUSTER program throughout Western Australia, working with Local Government Shires and Councils across WA to gain their acceptance to implement the program within their regions.


Early in the program his efforts, in conjunction with a local processor, resulted in a major clean-up of over 350,000 stockpiled containers held at local council tips and on farms which was pivotal to “kick starting” the program in WA which has continued to grow and grow year on year.

With Bevan’s encouragement Western Australia became the first State to work with local community groups to provide inspection services for the program.  Through his efforts numerous local community groups have raised considerable funds to help financially support their local initiatives.

Graeme Passmore joined the team in 2005 allowing Bevan to focus his drumMUSTER efforts and expand his work into Agsafe’s other programs. Bevan has more recently been responsible for the region north of the Great Eastern Highway.


drumMUSTER is greatly indebted to Bevan for his outstanding contribution to the program and we wish him all the best with his future endeavours.

Graeme Passmore, drumMUSTER’s Southern WA Regional Consultant, will be handling all drumMUSTER enquiries for the state and assisting Councils with continuing to provide the valuable drumMUSTER service to levy payers.

Western Australian members can be assured that Bevan is still providing training and premises accreditation assessments.
