The Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) is sponsoring its summer collection program for empty plastic pesticide containers from licensed pesticide applicators.  The MDA will provide a collection trailer for the Southern Maryland Region at the USDA-BARC Visitors Center located on Powder Mill Road in Prince George’s County, Maryland on September 16, 2010 between the hours of  9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. 

The recycled containers will be shipped and hauled away to be made into plastic lumber and other recycled products.  MDA inspectors will supervise the collection to ensure only triple rinsed, clean pesticide containers are collected. Additional information on the rinsing of empty pesticide containers can be obtained from the following MDA publications: Rinsing and Recycling Empty Pesticide Containers and Pesticide Information Sheet No.7 - Pesticide Container Recycling Program.  Additional information from the MDA can be found on the web at  or by calling 1-410-841-5710.
