Over 1900 Jugs and 620 Gallons of Oil Recycled During County Ag Day


DUBOIS COUNTY -- Farmers and land 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, July 31. Over 1900 plastic pesticide jugs were recycled during the morning event by 28 participants. Additionally, the ag day offered waste oil recycling, which brought in 620 gallons of oil to be recycled

“We enjoy providing this service for our farmers and land managers. We have some die-hard recyclers out there. Seeing all of those jugs getting recycled gives you a good feeling,” District director Carla Striegel-Winner stated. “Being able to offer the bulk oil recycling adds to it as well, they appreciate that.”

The Dubois County Solid Waste District thanks county farmers and land managers for taking time out of their busy day to recycle and do the right thing for themselves, their neighbors and their community.
