5.Chemical Waste

drumMUSTER is the national program for collection and recycling of empty, cleaned farm chemical containers.

Chemical users pay 4 cents per litre or kilogram levy on eligible products sold in non-returnable containers. Containers are identified by a logo (sticker, label or embossed) which shows they are eligible for recycling through drumMUSTER. 

All of Gannawarra Shire Council's Transfer stations are drumMUSTER locations. The Transfer Stations will accept drums during normal operating hours, but will require you to book in advance.

For more information visit the Drummuster website

6.E-waste

You can now recycle your unwanted or broken electrical appliances at the landfills and transfer station in the Gannawarra Shire.

Computer Monitors, Laptops & TVs cost $22.00 each as they contain toxic chemicals including barium, phosphor, lead and hexavalent chromium which require special handling. All other e-waste is accepted FREE of charge.

White goods cannot be accepted as part of this program.
