South East Queensland AgVet Chemical Cleanup – Reminder to register by Friday 13 May
To assist farmers and other agvet chemical users impacted by the recent floods, Agsafe, in collaboration with Qld Department of Environment and Science, is enabling an extraordinary ChemClear run through SE Qld.
As with other ChemClear campaigns, agricultural chemical holders will need to pre-register. Please click on this link or go to www.Chemclear.org.au and follow the Qld Flood links.
This ‘Flood Run’ is a short, sharp campaign to remove drumMUSTER eligible products that have been impacted by the flood, and therefore rendered obsolete. This is a free service for drumMUSTER eligible products. In addition, the Qld Department of Environment and Science will fund four non-drumMUSTER products at the same time.
This campaign is designed to enable to safe and secure removal of flood-impacted chemicals off farms and out of rural communities with no additional cost for registrants accepted.
There are some eligibility requirements which will be further specified during the registration process.
As this is a short campaign, you need to register products by Friday 13 May. Please go to the website for further details. This registration form and the confirmation of delivery of products can be used for QA or BMP programs if required.
Also, to ensure there is limited risk associated with the drop-off of affected chemicals and containers, registrants are required to follow the directions of council staff and all PPE should be worn when handling the products delivered.
The registration process will allow for specific units for the drop off of flood-impacted products to be identified and where possible units for the segregation of particular products will be noted. Please give as much detail that is available during the registration process.
