Free Pesticide Container Recycling Offered

Pesticide Container Recycling

The Maryland Department of Agriculture is sponsoring its summer collection program for empty plastic (HDPE) pesticide containers according to specific guidelines.

The nearest location to St. Mary’s County that accepts out-of-county pesticide containers will be hosted by the Frederick County Landfill at 9031 Reich’s Ford Road, Frederick, MD 21704 on July 20, August 17, and September 21, 2020, between the hours of 9 am and 3 pm.

MDA inspectors will supervise the collection to ensure only triple rinsed or pressure rinsed, clean, plastic HDPE pesticide containers are collected. Information on the inspection checklist for the empty pesticide containers and the recycling program itself can be viewed here.

For further information, contact the Maryland Department of Agriculture, Pesticide Regulation Section at 410-841-5710 or visit their website.
