40 Land & Water Management ChemClear® Collecting unwanted AG and vet chemicals ChemClear® is an industry stewardship program which is funded to collect currently registered agricultural and veterinary chemicals at the end of their life cycle, or, when they become surplus. The program is targeted to meet disposal requirements of ag and vet chemical users, and, whilst doing so diverts potential hazardous chemicals from being dumped in landfills, creeks or being inappropriately disposed of in the community. There are only six steps to the program, it’s that simple: Step 1: Take an Inventory of your unwanted ag and vet chemicals Step 2: Register them for collection Step 3: Continue to store your registered chemicals safely and securely Step 4: ChemClear® will contact you direct to advise the location for retrieval Step 5: Prepare chemicals for delivery to collection site Step 6: Deliver chemicals Group 1 chemicals are collected free of charge under the program, these chemicals are currently registered ag and vet chemicals manufactured by companies supporting the Industry Waste Reduction Stewardship initiative. Group 2 chemicals are those chemicals that are no longer registered, unknown, unlabelled, out of date, or mixed ag and vet chemicals. A fee applies for disposal.
