[greenyes] Reclaiming plastic pesticide containers
Jenny,

Product Care in British Columbia has a working product stewardship program dealing with mostly household (and some farm use) paint, flammable liquids, pesticide and gasoline. Provincial legislation states that recovered material must be re-used or recycled according to best available practices. There is a hidden user fee that pays for the program, completely run by industry.
