IL Dept of Ag to Offer Free Recycling Program for Agrichemical Containers


The Illinois Department of agriculture will be offering free recycling for agrichemical containers.

The agency's Richard Severns says farmers and agrichemical facilities are urged to save their empty containers for the upcoming recycling days.
"From July 22 all the way through August 11, the department will have 28 sites operating a single day collection. There's one in the morning that'll run from 9-11 and one in the afternoon that's from 1-3."

Containers must be clean and dry and be free of caps and labels. Mini and intermediate bulk containers must be cut into separate top, bottom and sides and fittings removed.
