What’s in your shed? Do you have unwanted or expired agrichemicals lying around on your farm? Agrecovery can help you solve the problem.
Step 1 : Take an inventory
To register your chemicals we will need to know:
- Chemical name
- Original pack size and remaining volume
- State (eg. liquid or solid)
- Condition of container
If you have unknown chemicals (ie. those with no label or mixed), please list these as "Unknown".
You can print a copy of the inventory form to help you.
For household or garden chemicals please contact your local council for disposal options as these are not subsidised through Agrecovery.
Step 2 : Book disposal
- Book online
- Post or fax back our Booking Form, or
Your booking will be acknowledged by post or email.
Please refer to the Upcoming Collections page for planned collection events. If your disposal requirements are urgent please contact us directly.
Step 3 : Store chemicals safely
Please store your unwanted chemicals in a secure safe location.
Chemicals booked for disposal should remain on your property and are your responsibility until the collection event.
Step 4 : Subsidies assessed
Some chemicals are free for disposal and collection, others are subsidised. We will let you know what applies to your chemicals.
The Agrecovery Chemicals programme is partly industry funded via the Agrecovery Container programme levy. This levy is paid to the Agrecovery Foundation by participating agrichemical, animal health and dairy hygiene companies – known as “participating brand owners”.
