Paraguay to issue agchem container rules

Paraguay is to introduce regulations on the safe storage and recycling of empty pesticide containers. The Paraguayan plant health and seed quality service, the Senave, intends to “speed up the issue of regulations”, its director general, Fernando Rios, says. “We seek to work within the framework of sustainable agriculture through good practice and safe use of pesticide containers,” he explains. The rules would cover plastic, metal, paper and cardboard packaging, and their triple-rinse cleaning, collection and disposal. A network of small and large collection centres would be established, the Senave adds. They would be away from urban areas and constructed under strict safety requirements. Users would have to keep receipts of use for at least a year for Senave audit purposes.
