Plastic Pesticide Container Recycling Guidelines

  1. Triple rinse or pressure rinse all containers when emptied.  Remember, it is best to rinse containers immediately after they are emptied.  Some pesticide residues solidify quickly, and become difficult to remove from the container if left in the jug.
  2. Dispose of the Pesticide Caps and remove sleeves and labels from containers.  The Pesticide Caps are made of different plastic material that can not currently be recycled.
  3. Each empty pesticide container returned will be inspected to ensure it has been properly rinsed.  Unrinsed containers will not be accepted.
