There are many types of containers from chemical drums through to water bottles. Labels are acceptable. Please remove lids and bring in separately.
Chemical Drums – Herbicides, Pesticides and DG (dangerous goods).
These must be triple rinsed with no remaining residue or content. For a guide on triple rinsing see the drumMUSTER website page “Agsafe Effective Drum Rinsing Standards”
Chemical Drums – Non DG
These must still be rinsed. Depending on the chemical, triple rinsing may not be needed, but must still leave the drum with no residue.
Other HDPE Containers – large water containers, milk bottles
Must be rinsed leaving the container with no residue.
We do not accept oil or paint drums due to contamination problems.
If you have any doubts as to the containers suitability for recycling please contact us.
