ChemClear Logo

ChemClear provides Australian agricultural and veterinary chemical users  with a collection and disposal pathway for their unwanted chemicals. Since entering the agricultural waste sector in 2003, ChemClear has strived to help farmers and other users of agvet chemicals manage chemical storages and deliver solutions for chemical waste disposal.

ChemClear is Australia’s only Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) program operating for agvet chemicals and is an initiative of the Industry Waste Reduction Scheme (IWRS). ChemClear is funded by a 4c per lt/kg levy collected under the Industry Waste Reduction Scheme (IWRS).  The levy also supports ChemClear’s sister program drumMUSTER.

ChemClear and its partners are delighted with the progress the service has made over the past nine years in which the program has collected and disposed of in excess of 341 tonnes of obsolete, inherited and unknown agvet chemicals. Using ChemClear ensures that agvet chemical users will meet their responsibilities and obligations under any Quality Assurance, Farm or Environmental Management program.
ChemClear is delivered by Agsafe Limited on behalf of AgStewardship Australia Limited and its stakeholders CropLife Australia, Animal Health Alliance, Veterinary Manufacturer’s and Distributors Association, the National Farmers Federation and the Australian Local Government Association.
