Recycling Information

Pesticide Container Recycling Program

Whoever you use to recycle your containers, MCPR encourages members to evaluate your pesticide recycling vendor to ensure the firm is addressing two major issues:

  1. that the company has a system that tracks and documents the containers once they leave your facility and that the plastic is handled legally and safely including ultimate use restricted to end use products that tests have show minimize any pesticide residue exposure to humans, and
  2. that the company adheres to all ANSI/ASABE S596 Standards: Recycling Plastic Containers from Pesticides and Pesticide-Related Products.

The Ag Container Recycling Council (ACRC) is the national organization that has organized and funds the ag pesticide container recyclign program for the industry in the USA and has ensured MCPR that those systems and documents are in place for their vendor, G. Phillips and Sons, LLC.

GPS is the ACRC contractor for the 15 Midwest states as of January 1, 2017.  The industry subsidized program provides free recycling of triple rinsed plastic packaging 55 gallons for smaller.  Our container collection program takes the work and confusion out of properly recycling used plastic containers.

Leave the work to us.  We have crews that will come out to you and process your material on-site.  In fact, we have tripled our fleet of mobile equipment to provide three times the customer service as before.  You can count on consistent, convenient collection and recycling of your ag chemical plastic.

Minnesota Department of Agriculture's Waste Pesticide Collection Program

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is stepping up efforts to help Minnesota farmers and households to safely dispose of unwanted and unusable pesticides through the Waste Pesticide Collection Program. The program provides an environmentally sound option to dispose of unusable and unwanted pesticides.

Through the Waste Pesticide Collection program, pesticide users in every county around the state will have opportunities to dispose of unwanted agricultural pesticides once every other year and household pesticide products at least once a year.

Access the MDA's Waste Pesticide Collection Program webpage. Here you will find further information on the program as well as links to the Waste Pesticide Collection Schedule and Frequently Asked Questions.
