Pesticide Container Recycling Collection Begins

July 14, 2014, 6:08 AM

Pesticide Container Recycling Collection Begins
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota Department of Agriculture is encouraging farmers, ranchers and businesses to take advantage of the free pesticide container recycling collection starting Monday.

Pesticides may be disposed of at a solid waste landfill or turned over for recycling. With either of these methods, containers must be triple or pressure rinsed to remove contaminants.

The collections run through Sept. 10 in 37 locations around the state. (PDF)

Recycling is the preferred way of disposing pesticide containers because containers are removed from the solid waste stream and the discarded materials can be reused. Many solid waste facilities do not take pesticide containers because they do not have enough staff to ensure containers are properly prepared for disposal
