As part of their Agrichemical Container Recycling Program, the Illinois Department of Agriculture has released the locations, dates and times for the single day collections this July and August (Figure). These single-day sites complement the three permanent container collection sites that are open throughout the year. It is estimated that more than 1.6 million pounds of plastic have been recycled over the more than 20 years that this program has been running.
