ACRC Seeks Input on Pesticide Container Recycling

The Agricultural Retailers Association has partnered with the Ag Container Recycling Council to assess the current state of ag retailer participation in pesticide container recycling, which is an easy and free way for ag retailers to demonstrate your commitment to environmental protection and sustainability of modern agriculture.
