Recycle point open

DrumMUSTER is the industry-funded national program for the collection and storage of chemical containers.

Mr Del Simone said he was now accepting containers at the Hills Cold Store at 951 Canning Road, Pickering Brook, during office hours.

The containers are sent for processing where they are shredded and transformed into practical items such as plastic cable covers, wheelie bins, road signs and bollards.

DrumMUSTER national program manager Allan McGann said the program welcomed the collection point at Pickering Brook and encouraged farmers in the area to take part.

All containers presented at the collection must meet the program’s cleanliness standards. Containers must be triple rinsed and free of chemical residue.
