The Ag Container Recycling Council (ACRC) is a non-profit organization that safely collects and recycles triple or pressure rinsed plastic pesticide containers. ACRC has thousands of farmers and applicators nationwide that participate in the free recycling program. The ACRC is fully funded by over 50 member companies and affiliates that formulate, produce, package and distribute crop protection and other pesticide products. ACRC and its six contractors cooperate with local states and municipalities to collect and recycle pesticide containers in 43 states.
