Crop Life South Africa recently made the January 2018 guidelines for the responsible disposal of empty plastic pesticide containers available.
Empty containers may not be burned or buried on the farm, sold or given away as containers for any other commodities. They can, however, be recycled if they have been rinsed three times. Crop Life SA has approved several service providers that can dispose of such containers. Click here to see the approved list.
