Plastic Pesticide Container Recycling Program
The Plastic Pesticide Container recycling program allows farmers and commercial applicators to recycle their plastic containers.
- Containers must be triple rinsed in accordance with the label
- Best if rinsed at the time you fill the sprayer and rinse water is added to the spray solution
- Bring the empty containers to 6245 Tuttle Creek Blvd, Manhattan
- Arrangements can be made to have large numbers of containers picked up by calling the office at (785) 539-3202 and making an appointment
The containers are then delivered to a holding area at the Pottawatomie County Weed Department where they are stored until fall when a recycling company brings a plastic container chipper to the site.Products Made from Recycled Containers
