We are now working with ACRC (Ag Container Recycling Council) to facilitate recycling along the East coast for rigid HDPE plastic agricultural containers. Funding from the ACRC allows us to provide a free container collection service to the following states:
CT, DE, MA, ME, MD, NH, NY, RI, VA, VT, WV.
The recycling program through ACRC accepts rigid high-density polyethylene (HDPE) 55-gallon containers and smaller, that previously held products utilized in agricultural crop protection, animal health, specialty pest control, micronutrient, biologicals, fertilizer, and adjuvant products.
NOTE: PA and NJ each have their own state sponsored program, for information about recycling containers in those states go to the websites below.
Follow this checklist to ensure that your containers are acceptable. ALL containers that are not acceptable based on the guidelines will not be rejected and left for the collection site to handle.
Properly prepared and rinsed containers are vital to the success of the collection program. Containers must be triple rinsed and free of any remaining liquid residue and dried flaky residue around the opening/handle.
Stained, but rinsed containers are acceptable. Unacceptable containers will be rejected at the collection site! For more information on recycling, proper rinsing techniques, and eligible containers check out this information here.
