Container Management

CropLife SA has a well structured empty container management system with collectors and recyclers that have been vetted and approved as reliable and ethical operators. They assist farmers by redeeming triple-rinsed empty plastic pesticide containers and recycling the containers into other valuable plastic commodities.

All CropLife SA approved service providers issue farmers with a Certificate of Adequate Disposal that export producers require for their GlobalGAP certification. More than 62% of empty containers are collected and recycled through the effective services of the 45+ CropLife SA approved collectors and recyclers.

A list of resources has been created to assist anyone who wants to get involved:
