Australia nears drum collection milestone

The collection of 20 million used pesticide containers in Australia is expected to be achieved in the next few months, according to the industry’s stewardship body, Agsafe. Some 19.7 million containers have been collected for recycling since the drumMuster programme started in 1999. “It took us eight years to collect our first 10 million drums,” says drumMuster programme manager Allan McGann. “In a little under five years, we would have collected a further 10 million,” he adds. “This goes to show the growing support drumMuster has garnered over the past 13 years.”
