Richmond Valley Council has joined the drumMUSTER program, which provides Australian agricultural and veterinary chemical users with a recycling pathway for eligible empty agvet containers. Council now accepts clean, triple-rinsed used farm chemical containers at all our landfill and transfer station sites at Casino, Bora Ridge and Evans Head. This collection is free of charge.
On arrival at the landfill, please advise the site supervisor who will inspect containers to make sure they are free of chemical residue. Steel and plastic drums are accepted, containers must be triple rinsed and lids should be removed before delivery.
