Free farm pesticide jug recycling event Tuesday, June 22.

AMBER TOWNSHIP — The Mason-Lake Conservation District and Acres Co-op are hosting a pesticide jug recycling day for area farms on Tuesday, June 22, 2021 from 11 a.m. to noon at Acres Co-op, 709 W. US 10-31. Recycling is free of charge.

Jugs must be triple-rinsed and dry with caps and booklets removed. Containers up to 55 gallons are accepted and plastic must be a HDPE #2 or #7. Containers should be tied together with twine or brought in loose to be loaded into the recycling truck. 

This program is possible as a result of work of the Conservation District’s Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP). MAEAP strives to help local farms keep up to date with environmental protections and be the top stewards of the land.
