Brazil recycling case settled

Agrochemical manufacturers and importers are solely responsible for the recycling and disposal of empty pesticide containers in Brazil, a court has found. The first division of the supreme court of justice, the STJ, has rejected an appeal from the company, Santos e Paccini- Fineplast, for the right to act as a commercial recycler of such waste. It argued that the system was unconstitutional and denied free trade. The decision grants the national pesticide container disposal organisation, the InPev as the only licensed recycler of empty pesticide containers. The InPev represents 99% of agrochemical companies in Brazil, including the seven largest.
