Abstract/Contents:"Two very successful pilot programs for collection, disposal and recycling of empty pesticide containers were implemented in the states of Minnesota and Mississippi in 1989. Two concepts were embraced: (1) demonstration and education in Minnesota; and (2) commercial collection and recycling in Mississippi. There were two main objectives: (1) educate farmers and applicators on the need to properly rinse pesticide containers in an effort to avoid adverse environmental consequences and save money in the process; and (2) determine and assess the practical and economic feasibility of such collection/recycling concepts."
