Effective January 1, 2024, chemical containers under 23L are no longer accepted at the West Dried Meat Lake Regional Landfill. Instead, farmers can recycle their empty, triple-rinsed, under 23L ag containers at the retail outlets from which they purchase their products.
Cleanfarms, the organization that manages the recycling of ag containers, is making this transition to bring recycling to retailers to make the process easier for producers to recycle their chemical containers. This transition creates many more locations to drop off empty containers with later hours and provide a drop-off location that producers go to regularly.
More information, including drop-off locations, is available online at https://cleanfarms.ca/mb-ab-jug-transition/#tab-id-2.
