Collection about to kick off in Southern NSW

Published: 24-10-2013

ChemClear will begin its collection of unwanted and out-of-date agvet chemicals across southern NSW.

The program called on all southern NSW agvet chemical holders to register their chemicals for collection after a month long call to action.

ChemClear National Manager Lisa Nixon said the response was impressive.

“We had more than 65 registrations come in during the campaign,” she said.

“We have a group of registrants that will remain on the booking line while 35 agvet users will take up the opportunity to deliver their chemicals to the program.”

The collection will cover 2,695 km starting from the Victorian border at Barham and proceed through the Murray up to Cowra, Marulan and back around to Braidwood, Tumut and Wagga Wagga before finishing off in Corowa.

The truck will be visiting another 14 locations along the way.

The collection comes off the back of a successful state-wide campaign late last year where the ChemClear truck collected more than 10 tonnes of products.

The program has disposed of more than 98 tonnes of obsolete chemicals from across NSW during more than 20 collections.
