DrumMUSTER offers farmers an easy and environmentally friendly way to dispose of empty farming chemical containers. 

The program collects eligible non-returnable metal or plastic containers that held 1-205 litres or kgs in declared content of crop production and animal health products. 

You can dispose of farm chemical drums at permanent collection sites at Eaglehawk Eco-Centre, Heathcote Transfer Station or the Goornong Transfer Station during normal opening hours. Bookings are essential: 

  • Goornong 0437 700 852       
  • Eaglehawk 03 5446 3917           
  • Heathcote 03 5433 2849 

Containers recovered by the drumMUSTER program are recycled into items such as wheelie bins, fence posts and garden stakes.

To assist City of Greater Bendigo in accepting your drumMUSTER containers:

  • please arrive as early as possible to the landfill/transfer station opening time as all containers need to be inspected
  • all containers must be flushed, pressure rinsed or triple rinsed prior to delivery to a drumMUSTER site
  • containers will not be accepted if there are any visible chemical residue on the inside or outside of the container.
