Brazil state public-private deal on recycling

Two Brazilian pesticide sector associations are to co-operate with the state of Sao Paulo’s Environment Ministry on improving the disposal of empty pesticide containers. The pesticide container disposal organisation, the inpEV, and the agricultural inputs distributors’ association, the Andav, have committed to sharing with the state authority updated information on the volumes of used containers, lists of manufacturers, registrants and retailers participating in the efforts at improving activities such as recycling. The associations have also committed to more extensive training and education of users and to encourage the return of empty containers. Recycling of containers in Brazil has advanced since the 1990s, and the inpEV has claimed that the country has become the world leader in the past few years ( Agrow passim). Its Campo Limpo programme has resulted in over 27,000 tonnes of containers being recycled in Sao Paulo alone in the past ten years.
