Agriculture Recycling Day announced

The Dubois County Solid Waste District is sponsoring its annual Agriculture Recycling Day from 8 a.m. to noon Wednesday, July 31. Dubois County farmers and land managers are invited to bring their empty, triple-rinsed pesticide containers (with lids off) to be recycled. Last year over 2,500 containers were recycled during this event. Farmers and land managers are encouraged to recycle again this year; additional businesses or agencies are welcome to participate.

Drums of used oil will also be accepted during Ag Day by preregistration only. Any farmers having waste oil need to contact the solid waste district with how many drums and how many total gallons they would like to recycle. Once registered, drums must arrive on pallets or be able to be easily slide onto a pallet. Drums will be emptied and be available for pick up at a later date. No drums will be accepted without advance registration.

The event takes place at the District’s Process Center, located at 1103 S. 350W, just outside of Jasper. This is during regular public hours, so items that are accepted on a daily basis will be accepted as well. Farmers and land managers may call the office at 812-482-7865 or check out Facebook’s page for additional information on the event.
