IDOA to offer free recycling program for agrichemical containers
SPRINGFIELD – Illinois farmers soon will have a cheap and convenient opportunity to dispose of their empty agrichemical containers.
The Illinois Department of Agriculture has arranged to offer a free pesticide container recycling program this summer. Beginning in late July, sites throughout the state will collect the containers and grind them into small plastic chips that will be used to make shipping pallets, fence posts, drainage tubing, plastic lumber and other useful products.
“This program is an excellent example of the care Illinois farmers are taking to protect our environment,” Agriculture Director Bob Flider said. “Since its inception, more than two million agrichemical containers destined for landfills have been collected and recycled into useful products.”
