Mexico recycled 13% more containers in 2013

The collection and recycling of empty pesticide containers rose by 12.7% in Mexico last year to some 2,850 tonnes, the Ministry of Agriculture reports. That compared to some 2,528 tonnes the previous year. The rise was boosted by a 21 million peso ($1.6 million at the current rate) investment in equipment and the reactivation of 66 temporary collection centres, three of which were run privately, the Ministry notes. The food quality and health service, the Senasica, has set a goal of collecting 3,100 tonnes this year. The Ministry runs the system, which includes the installation of recycling plants and the recycling of plastic into various products.
