Do you have empty pesticide containers to recyle? You can recycle clean, dirt and residue free, triple-rinsed plastic containers. For triple rinse procedures see the Ag Container Recycling Council (ACRC) website and select the link for Container Rinsing. All size containers up to 55-gallon capacity plastic drums can be accepted. Containers need to be made from high density polyethylene (HDPE) and embossed with recycling symbol #2. No pre-registration is needed for dropping off empty,triple-rinsed pesticide containers, and there is no charge for this service.
Old and unused pesticides can enter waterways through leaching, flooding, or runoff. Chemicals collected from the watershed and disposed of are removed as threats to water quality. Help protect drinking water and fish habitat by bringing your old and unused pesticides to this collection event for proper disposal.
For more information on this event, see the Pesticide Collection Event brochure.
This event is funded through a DEQ 319 grant awarded to the Tualatin Soil and Water Conservation District and matching funds provided by the Clackamas County Soil and Water Conservation District.
