Registrations have officially closed for the upcoming West Australian ChemClear collection.
Preparations for the comprehensive state-wide pick-up are well under way, with around 53 local shire councils set to host the ChemClear retrieval vehicle in its ‘milk run’ collection around the West. There are currently 14,566 litres of group one chemicals registered, which are collected free of charge under the industry stewardship program. There are also 18,086 litres of group two products registered, which involve chemicals that are historic, unlabelled or from non-participating companies. These chemicals attract a per-litre disposal fee under the program.
National Program Manager Lisa Nixon has been working hard to ensure the collection process is as easy and convenient as possible for registered waste holders; not an easy task when covering a state as massive as WA.
“The registration booking line for this collection closed on the 9th of March and staff are still busy adding registrations received into our database. We are gearing up for a four to five week collection run around the state with the retrieval vehicle scheduled to depart Victoria in early April,” she said.
“The last 12 months have been incredibly busy for ChemClear and I’m delighted to see that WA’s chemical waste holders are responding positively to our industry stewardship program’s third visit to the region since 2007.”
