Grower Requested Own Use (GROU) Container Disposal
Proper disposal and recycling of pesticide containers is important
for the health of our families, our environment and the agricultural
sector. Canadian farmers have helped make Canada's recycling rate
for pesticide containers among the world's best.
We have to make sure that products imported under the GROU program
are properly dealt with. That means that every container needs to
be triple rinsed, delivered to your local pesticide container disposal
site and recycled.
There is a cost to running these container disposal programs and, as
such, this web site will allow Canadian farmers to prepay for the
disposal and recycling of their GROU containers in the same way that
they pay for their regular Canadian registered products where this cost
is built in.
