This year's final collection event for the Pesticide Container Recycling Program in Atlantic County will be held on Friday, October 7 from 9 am to 3 pm at Helena Chemical on Route 206 in Hammonton. The program is offered to agricultural, professional and commercial pesticide applicators who hold a NJDEP pesticide license. State, county and municipal government agencies may also participate. A representative from the New Jersey Department of Agriculture will be on-site to inspect the containers and issue one core credit to pesticide license holders who follow all of the required processing steps. To receive credit, participants must bring their pesticide license to the collection site and must follow all of the processing steps. Core credits will not be issued to participants who fail to follow all of the pesticide container processing steps.
