Pesticide Container Recycling Day Set
You're not supposed to put empty pesticide containers in the trash. So what do you do with them? Periodically, pesticide container recycling days are set up around the state to allow people to get rid of these containers.

One such pesticide container recycling day is set for Wednesday, March 27, at Gwinnett Technical College. Containers may be brought for disposal anytime between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The containers must be a No. 2 type plastic and must be triple rinsed or pressure rinsed and punctured. No other type of container and no container with pesticide residues can be accepted.

For more information, contact Steve Cole of the Georgia Department of Agriculture at (404) 656-9373. Or call Robert Brannen of the University of Georgia Extension Service at (678) 377-4010.
