Disposal of obsolete stocks
Caring for the environment
As part of our commitment to the life cycle approach of product stewardship, we work in association with governments to implement disposal and recycling programs. One initiative, for example, paved the way to the elimination of waste, as the empty drums – designed for easy transport and storage – are collected at the farms at the end of the season and recycled. Here, water is also conserved as growers do not need to rinse the empty jugs.
We recommend guidelines and standards for the storage and transport of crop protection products. In the case of storage, these guidelines address, for example, the location of storage facilities away from homes, schools and community areas.
