Larger containers will be collected at a later arranged date and time.” Labels must be removed and containers must be triple or pressure rinsed to remove contaminants. Containers are ground up and sent to a facility where the plastic is often used to make drain tiles, speed bumps, fence posts or for other agricultural uses. “State law prohibits the burning of these plastic pesticide containers so taking advantage of the Pesticide Container Hartington Tree LLC TREE TRIMMING, REMOVALS & TRANSPLANTING TREES FOR SALE EVERGREEN • SHADE • ORNAMENTAL Yankton 605-260-1490 Hartington 402-254-6710 Serving Southeast SD & Northeast NE for 20 Years Kent & Kyle Hochstein • Licensed Arborists www.hartingtontree.com Recycling Program is an easy option for disposal,” said Gere. “If you are a large quantity generator of containers, or have no collections in your area, it may be possible to have SDDA staff come directly to your location and collect containers.” SDDA provides the Pesticide Container Recycling Program at no cost.
