ChemClear® is a national service for the safe collection and disposal of registered Agvet chemicals. The aim of the program is to minimise the accumulation of unwanted, redundant or expired agricultural chemicals. without collection and proper treatment, these chemicals may pose a serious risk to the environment and public health and safety.

There are two groups of Agvet chemicals that ChemClear® collects:

  • Group 1 chemicals are currently registered products manufactured by participating companies, identifiable by the DrumMUSTER/ChemClear® logo. These products are collected free of charge.
  • Group 2 chemicals are products manufactured by non-participating companies, or deregistered, unlabelled, unknown or mixed. These products will be collected with a per litre/kilogram disposal fee. 

To be able to use the ChemClear® program, your chemicals need to be registered. To register your chemicals, either visit or call 1800 008 182
