Brazil agchem container recycling recovers to new records

The disposal and recycling of empty pesticide containers recovered in Brazil in the second quarter of 2013 to reach new record levels for the first six months of a year. Recycling rose by 9.4% compared with the first half of 2012 to stand at some 21,381.5 tonnes by the end of June, according to the agrochemical container disposal organisation, the inpEV. Its figures showed a rare fall in the first quarter, registering a 2.1% drop in collection (Agrow No 664, p 14). Some of the minor states saw strong rises in collections. Among the 12 minor states for container collections in Brazil, the cumulative increase was over 50% to stand at just over 300 tonnes of containers.  In Tocantins, recycling rose by around 80% to some 136 tonnes. Collections for the year ended June 2013 reached some 39,209 tonnes. That compares with the record annual haul in 2012 of 37,381 tonnes (Agrow No 657, p 12).
