Drum Muster

Do you have any used chemical containers that you want to get rid of?

Drum Muster is an environmentally-friendly way to do this.

Cassowary Coast Regional Council has drop-off points for the recycling of cleaned chemical containers, as part of its drive to make the region an even cleaner, greener place to live.

Council is part of a national program involving hundreds of other local governments.

All you need to do is clean your containers (please triple rinse) so they are free of any chemical residue.

Phone Council on 1300 763 903 to find out your nearest Drum Muster collection point.

Visit Drum Muster to find out more about the program, container eligibility and cleanliness standards for containers.


Chemclear is a related program for chemical drums which are:

  • not eligible for the Drum Muster collections
  • unable to be washed out
  • full of chemicals
  • containers for an unknown chemical.

There is an annual Chemclear collection.

Chemclear organisers can pick drums up for free from private properties if they have been registered as pick-up sites.
