Mexico extends public agchem clean up

The Mexican Ministry of Agriculture has extended a public-led programme to collect empty pesticide containers. The Ministry’s food quality and health service, the Senasica, has established co-ordination groups to oversee a clean-up programme in three states, bringing the number of states that are covered to 31, the service notes. They are headed by a Ministry of Agriculture official, and composed of other national and regional government, and pesticide industry representatives. The groups train agriculturalists in safe use and promote collection and recycling of empty containers. The Mexican industry helped to increase recycling by 30% in 2008 ( Agrow No 569, p 9).
