Opportunity for Southern Downs farmers to dispose of Agvet chemicals with ChemClear

21 April 2021



ChemClear collections happen in Queensland every 2- 3 years, so this is a great opportunity to clean up eligible chemicals from your property. If you have unwanted or obsolete agvet chemicals you need to safely dispose of, take advantage of the ChemClear collection in Queensland during July-August 2021. Simply register your chemicals by 13 June and they will be safely collected and disposed of.


All successful registrations will be acknowledged by email or post and a reference number relating to each of the Group 1 and 2 chemical registrations will be provided. Once chemicals are registered with ChemClear, farmers should continue to store the chemicals safely and securely.


Upon successful registration an appropriate quantity of storage stickers will be sent out by post, one month after registration with ChemClear. These stickers will display the registration reference number and are provided for placement on the containers which have been registered for disposal. These stickers will aid safe storage and identify the chemicals to employees, auditors and others as being registered for disposal.


ChemClear will contact farmers who register for the program directly to advise the location and date of the collection point in the Southern Downs region. Farmers who have registered any Group 2 classified chemicals will be provided with a quotation on a per lt/kg basis for the collection and disposal of these products and ChemClear will be in direct contact with registered parties to confirm the address of the collection site, a date for the collection and an appointment time to deliver the chemicals to the collection team.


Agvet chemical users can register their unwanted or obsolete agvet chemicals for collection by visiting the ChemClear website, www.chemclear.org.au or by calling 1800 008 182.
