Brazil agchem container recycling up 9% in 2011

Brazil’s disposal and recycling of empty pesticide containers continued its progress last year. Recycling organisation inpEV’s Campo Limpo system registered a 9.4% annual rise in the collection of such containers in 2011 to some 34,202 tonnes. That followed steady rises from the 24,415 tonnes collected in 2008. The inpEV has split the collections, noting that some 31,518 tonnes of recycled containers had been washed and can therefore be recycled, while the remainder was not. Campo Limpo was formed in 2008 with the help of government agencies among farmers, distributors, and manufacturers through inpEV itself. The latter provide the collection points and the transportation of containers ( Agrow No 544, p 20). Campo Limpo aims to recycle empty containers, turning them into new ones. The inpEV has overseen the collection and recycling of over 200,000 tonnes of containers since 2002, it says.
