SITA Environmental Solutions’ recent takeover of Emerald Recycling is excellent news for farmers and primary producers in the region, who will now have more opportunity to bring in their empty, pre-cleaned containers for disposal via the drumMUSTER service.
Users will no longer need to make appointments to take advantage of the program.
As a result, Queensland regional consultant Colin Hoey is looking forward to some improved returns in the region.
“We are very pleased with these new arrangements as better access means more containers being brought in and recycled,” Mr Hoey said.
“SITA manager Tamara Hinchey is keen for better community involvement and this augurs well for both the program’s results and the community as a whole.”
For Ms Hinchey, it is a wonderful opportunity to spearhead a budding partnership between drumMUSTER and SITA.
“This is SITA Emerald’s first foray into drumMUSTER and it’s all very new and exciting for us all,” she said.
“We think the service is just fantastic and I’m hoping we can expand our relationship with the agricultural community.
“It’s a real testament to the hard work being done to educate people about recycling and chemical management.”
Operating from Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm, SITA Environmental is ensuring users have flexibility.
All containers must be rinsed completely free of residue with the lids removed.
Anyone who would like to utilise the drumMUSTER service in Emerald can head to 5 McCosker St, or give Tamara a call on 4982 0213.
