Chemical Drum Disposal


How do I dispose of my used chemical drums?

Eligible drums can be taken any of our waste transfer stations DrumMuster collection points. When you arrive please advise the tipmaster on site that you have drums to be disposed of by drummuster.
Eligible containers are larger than 1 L/Kg and up to 205 L/Kg non returnable metal and plastic containers and will carry the DrumMuster eligible container logo. This logo may be applied to the container either as a sticker, printed as part of the label or embossed into the container material. DrumMuster can only reimburse Council for the collection of ‘levy paid’ containers carrying the DrumMaster eligible container logo. Some manufacturers have not joined the program and subsequently their containers are not part of DrumMuster.
Variation to the scope of the program since its inception allows acceptance of previously non-eligible containers such as surfactants, dairy chemicals and liquid fertilisers from participating manufacturers. The program will not accept petroleum or liquid chlorine containers that are used for non agricultural purposes. All eligible containers should carry the DrumMuster logo.
All containers must be triple rinsed before delivering to the transfer station. Failure to do this may result in your containers not being accepted. For more information, please go to www.drummuster.com.au
