Pesticide Container Recycling

Need Help Keeping the Farm Clean?

The Van Buren Conservation District is pleased to offer a free, non-regulatory empty pesticide container recycling program. If you have rigid, HDPE plastic containers that are 55 gallons or less and once held pesticides used for purposes other than home use, you can sign-up to have these jugs collected and recycled. For a full description of eligible containers, please see below.

To participate in the program, you must sign up with the Van Buren Conservation District and schedule appointments to drop the jugs off. Appointment times are available throughout the year, weather permitting. To sign up for the program and schedule your first appointment, please contact the Recycling Coordinator, Emilly Hickmott, at or (269) 657-4030 x5.
