Ag Dept. Offering Pesticide Container Recycling Program
The Illinois Department of Agriculture is offering a free pesticide container recycling program for farmers this summer.
The used containers will be ground into chips and turned into shipping pallets, fenceposts, and other products.
Ag Director Bob Flider said more than 2 million containers have been collected since the program began.
These containers would otherwise go into landfills.
Sites throughout the state will start collecting in late July.
