Pesticide Container Recycling Program

RecyPesticydAre you a landscape, nursery, grove owner or have a grove caretaking service here in Highlands County? If so, you may want to check out a very innovative recycling opportunity offered to agricultural businesses in Highlands County to recycle 2 ½ gallon or 30 gallon empty pesticide containers.

These containers must be pressure washed or triple rinsed before bringing them to the recycling facility located on Skipper Road just off of US 27.

Our staff will be glad to further explain this recycling program to you and how it can benefit your business. You can recycle your containers safely and best of all it is a “free of charge” service offered by the Highlands County Board of County Commissioners, Solid Waste Management and Recycling Department.
