The Dubois County Solid Waste District is sponsoring our annual Agriculture Recycling Day on Wednesday, August 2 from 8:00 am til 12 noon. Dubois County farmers and natural resource managers are invited to bring their empty triple rinsed pesticide containers to be recycled. Last year over 2300 containers were recycled during this event. The District encourages farmers and resource managers to recycle again this year.
If there is enough interest, drums of used oil will be accepted for a fee during the Ag Day hours only. Any farmers having waste oil need to contact the solid waste district with how many drums and how many total gallons they would like to recycle. If the service is provided, drums must arrive on pallets or be able to be easily slid onto a pallet. Drums will be emptied and be available for pick up at a later date. No drums will be accepted without advance reservation.
The event takes place at the District’s Process Center, located at 1103 South 350 West, just outside of Jasper. Farmers and resource managers can call the office at 812-482-7865 for additional information on the event.
