The drumMUSTER program, AgSafe’s stewardship program for the recycling of chemical containers, has achieved a remarkable milestone, having collected more than 42 million containers, equivalent to diverting 40,000 tonnes of material from landfill.

With 830 collection sites across Australia, farmers have a convenient and accessible avenue to responsibly dispose of their chemical containers.

drumMUSTER has been at the forefront of sustainable agriculture since its inception in New South Wales. Over the years, this initiative has evolved into a nationwide movement, leaving an enduring mark on the landscape of responsible waste management in the agricultural sector.

The impact of drumMUSTER extends beyond waste disposal. By facilitating the recycling of eligible and clean containers, the program actively contributes to reducing the environmental footprint of agricultural practices. The recycled materials find new life in the creation of products like wheely bins, irrigation pipes, bollards and more, embodying the essence of a circular economy.

Dairy farmers seeking to participate in this initiative can easily find a comprehensive directory of local collection sites across the country through the drumMUSTER website.

In a world where sustainability is paramount, drumMUSTER remains a shining example of how responsible stewardship can pave the way for a more sustainable and resilient future in Australian agriculture.
