What can be disposed?

What is ChemClear?

What do I have to do?

Take the inventory of all chemicals which require disposal and register your chemical online with ChemClear. Registered chemicals will be collected once the threshold of registrations for your area has reached.

What happens next?

Majority of the chemicals collected under the ChemClear program are used as an alternate fuel source through a range of disposal methods and technologies.

Bailing Twine

With many of our farmers feeding the livestock of the farm, there is a lot of this poly propylene twine to be found. It can be recycled by a local business Twin City Recyclers at 105 Sam Street, Forbes. They do not provide collection service but are more than happy to accept the drop-offs. Please contact Ryan on 0428512292 to book an appointment.
