Pesticide News Story: EPA Moves Forward To Propose a Rule Requiring Pesticide Container Recycling

For Release: January 25, 2008

EPA is moving forward to propose regulations that once finalized, would require registrants of agricultural and professional specialty pesticides to recycle plastic pesticide containers.

After careful deliberation and consideration of all possible options, the Agency is moving forward expeditiously with a proposed pesticide container recycling rule. Given the extensive time necessary for the rulemaking process, EPA is following an aggressive schedule that allows publishing the proposed regulations by the fall of 2008. The Agency will provide the public a 60-day comment period on the proposed rule.
