Waste Facilities

All waste facilities, including the Moree Waste Management Facility and our village landfills, are currently open in accordance with their usual operating hours.

These facilities are currently operating under social distancing requirements.

Please be mindful that we are focussed on maintenance of our essential services. We kindly request that community members do not present to our waste facilities with large quantities of domestic general, recycling and organic waste as this may affect our ability to deliver our core waste services.

DrumMUSTER

drumMUSTER is a national program that has been set up for the collection and recycling of empty, cleaned, non-returnable crop production and on-farm animal health chemical containers. The aim is to take the container materials out of the waste stream and reuse the plastic and steel through recycling. 

Containers must be flushed, pressure rinsed or triple rinsed prior to delivering to a drumMUSTER  receival site. There must be no visible chemical residue on the inside or outside of the container or it will not be accepted at a receival site.

drumMUSTER product is recycled into useful everyday items such as street signs, irrigation piping, plant stakes and outdoor furniture.

drumMUSTER provides:DrumMuster

  • an environmentally responsible solution for chemical users to the problem of disposing their empty chemical¬†containers;
  • helps property owners to keep their property clean of potential contamination;
  • encourages good farming practice and meets Quality Assurance obligations; and
  • Supports the preservation of the wider environment
