Recycle your empty plastic pesticide containers during the Stevens County collection, which will be held today at the Stevens County Highway Garage on Highway 9 North of Morris. Collection hours will be from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Only empty plastic pesticide containers, that are clean, dry, have the caps removed, and the labels removed as best as possible, will be accepted.
To ensure that the pesticide containers are free of all residue, triple rinse them. Again, only CLEAN containers will be accepted. For ease of transport it is advised to tie approximately 25 jugs together with baling twine. If you have any questions concerning the recycling of your pesticide containers, contact the Stevens County Environmental Services at 320-208-6558.
