Farmers make use of pesticides for farming activities. It is significant to consider the environment when disposing of the plastic containers for the pesticides after use.
Crop Life South Africa recently came up with the guidelines for the responsible disposal of empty plastic pesticide containers available to farmers in South Africa.
Some of the guidelines include; Empty containers may not be burned or buried on the farm, sold or given away as containers for any other commodities. They can, however, be recycled if they have been rinsed three times.
Crop Life SA has approved several service providers that can dispose of such containers. Click here to see the approved list.
