Pesticide Container Recycling Program

 

Pesticide container recycling is a national program supported by most of the major agrichemical manufacturers and distributors. The program's goal is to recycle empty, clean plastic agrichemical containers to end products that avoid potential environmental contamination and conserve valuable landfill space. The current end use for the recycled plastic is plastic shipping pallets (109 KB) for use in the agrichemical industry.

For more information about the program, see the US Ag Recycling website.
