Jul 29 - Addressing Pesticide Container Recyling

Department of Pesticide Regulation Director Mary-Ann Warmerdam provides video commentary released July 28 on pesticide container recycling. The piece highlights SB 1723 (Maldonando) which would require pesticide dealers to participate in an existing recycling program or develop their own. Pesticide dealers would pay for program costs while DPR would oversee it.

Pesticide containers made of rigid, nonrefillable, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) of 55 gallons or less would be fall under the specifications of SB1723.
