ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE TO RECYCLE AGRICHEMICAL CONTAINERS

The Illinois Department of Agriculture encourages farmers to recycle their empty agrichemical containers. Beginning in August, sites throughout the state will collect containers and grind them into small plastic chips used to make shipping pallets, fence posts, drainage tubing, plastic lumber and other useful products. Metal and household pesticide containers are not eligible for the recycling program.  Collection sites will accept only high-density polyethylene, #2 plastic, agrichemical containers that are clean and dry.  Participants are responsible for rinsing them and removing all caps, labels, booklets, and foil seals. The program is a cooperative venture between the Illinois Department of Agriculture, Agriculture Container Recycling Council, GROWMARK, Inc., Illinois Fertilizer and Chemical Association, Container Services Network, Illinois Farm Bureau and University of Illinois Extension. To obtain a free brochure about the program, call the Illinois Department of Agriculture at 1-800-641-3934.
