Ag day collects recyclable pesticide jugs, oilAugust 2, 2018
From Local Sources
Farmers and natural resource managers took advantage of the opportunity to recycle their plastic pesticide jugs at the Dubois County Solid Waste District’s annual Agriculture Recycling Day on Wednesday, recycling more than 2,500 of them.
Additionally, the agriculture day offered waste oil recycling; 600 gallons were recycled.
“This is a great opportunity for farmers and other land managers to recycle used oil,” said District Director Carla Striegel-Winner. “We only allow residents to recycle five gallons per household per day at our sites, and farmers can go through so much. It is great for them to be able to recycle their oil at our special event. They can bring their triple rinsed jugs and their oil on the same day.”
The Dubois County Solid Waste District thanks county farmers and resource managers for taking time out of their busy day to recycle and do the right thing for themselves, their neighbors and their community.
