Agrecovery is New Zealand’s solution for the safe disposal of unwanted agrichemicals, and the recycling of empty containers, drums and IBCs.
It’s your safe and sustainable alternative to burning or dumping these items, a practice now actively discouraged due to proven impacts on health and the environment. Agrecovery programmes are available to all farmers and growers, and other users of agrichemicals, biological, dairy hygiene and animal health products.
Check out our programmes to see how you can get involved.
