JASPER -- Farmers and natural resource managers took advantage of the opportunity to recycle their plastic pesticide jugs at the Dubois County Solid Waste District’s annual Agriculture Recycling Day on the morning of Wednesday, August 1st. Over 2500 plastic pesticide jugs were recycled during the morning event by 26 participants. Additionally, the ag day offered waste oil recycling.
“This is a great opportunity for farmers and other land managers to recycle used oil. We only allow residents to recycle 5 gallons per household per day at our sites, and farmers can go through so much. It is great for them to be able to recycle their oil at our special event,” District director Carla Striegel-Winner stated. “They can bring their triple rinsed jugs and their oil on the same day. The whole event is win-win!”
The Dubois County Solid Waste District thanks county farmers and resource managers for taking time out of their busy day to recycle and do the right thing for themselves, their neighbors and their community.
