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.
