Recycle your pesticide containers

Farmers can recycle empty commercial pesticide and fertilizer containers at no charge.

Clean empty containers that are 23 litres or smaller can be taken to the nearest collection site. Containers larger than 23 litres should be returned to the point of sale or to the manufacturer for disposal. Containers used for home and garden care with the words ‘Domestic’ on their label should be disposed of through an appropriate municipal program.

Along with being properly cleaned, caps and paper booklets should be removed as they require a different recycling process. Glued-on labels can stay on the container. For more info and collection site map, visit
