US pesticide container collection up 9%

The US agrochemical industry's Ag Container Recycling Council (ACRC) expects the collection of plastic pesticide containers to have increased by 9% to a record of over 10 million lbs (4,536 tonnes) this year. "ACRC's ability to consistently increase the volume of plastic collected while decreasing annual dues to members is a credit to the leadership of the ACRC executive board," says the Council's executive director, Ron Perkins. The ACRC has been responsible for the recycling of more than 150 million lbs of pesticide container plastic over the past 22 years.
