Costa Rica collects 500 tonnes of containers in 2013/14

Costa Rica’s Fundacion Limpiemos Nuestros Campos has collected some 515 tonnes of empty pesticide containers between 2013 and October 2014. Last year was the third of a campaign including the Ministries of Agriculture, Health and the Environment along with supporting companies seeking wider participation in recycling efforts. It was inspired by the CropLife Latin America association’s Campo Limpio programme. From 2008, Fundacion had collected some 1,130 tonnes of containers, with collections up each year on the last. The accumulated plastic containers are exported for recycling to Canada, China and Japan.
