What’s in your shed?

Keeping old or unwanted agrichemicals stored on your property presents an unnecessary risk to staff and family, livestock, pets and the environment.

Don’t leave them lingering for the next generation to deal with – book them for collection!

Confirmation

Your booking will be held in our system until a collection is planned for your region (generally every 12-18 months).

At that point, we will review your booking, advising if any costs would apply to your collection. You can then choose whether to proceed with all, part or none of your booking.

Have a question?

We operate collections on a regional basis, check out Sites and Events for our latest schedule.

Participating brands pay a levy to the Agrecovery Foundation based on sales of product (60 litres or less) into the NZ market. These levied funds cover free collection and disposal of many agrichemicals from these brands. For non-funded products, user-pays fees will be quoted prior to any collection activity.

No, please contact your local council for disposal options as these items are not collected by Agrecovery.

Agrecovery uses qualified chemical contractors for the collection and disposal of your unwanted chemicals. Chemicals will be disposed of according to New Zealand regulations as appropriate – depending on the class of chemical, these are currently disposed of in New Zealand and France.

Agrecovery Chemicals is accredited by the Minister for the Environment as a Product Stewardship Programme under the Waste Minimisation Act 2008. Read the accreditation summary.
