Brazil 9-mnth agchem recycling up 5%

Brazil’s recycling of empty pesticide containers continues to rise, albeit less steeply. It recycled or collected 28,700 tonnes of empty containers in the first three quarters of 2012, a rise of 4.8% on the same period in 2011, according to the container collection organisation, the inpEV. Of those, some 26,400 tonnes had been rinsed before collection. The proportion of containers being recycled is around 80%, according to press reports. InpEV chief João Cesar Rando told Agrolink newswire in Brazil that the recycling system, Campo Limpo, had “reached maturity” and covered the whole country, and that the 80% collection rates were just ahead of “Canada and Germany, which recycle 75%”. To reach 100% collection rates would “require the country to invest in logistics and supervisory campaigns”, Mr Rando told Agrolink.
