Bolivian agchem container recycling up

Bolivian rural workers, the national pesticide industry association and other partners collected or recycled some 172 tonnes of empty plastic pesticide containers in 2011, the national agrochemical industry association, the Apia, reports. The association’s previously released figures for such collections amounted to some 152 tonnes covering the 12 months until the end of June 2011. That included some 78% that had been tripled rinsed. By that time, some 450 tonnes had been collected since the Apia programme was initiated in 2005. Annual collections first reached 100 tonnes in 2009 ( Agrow No 593, p 19).
