Prepare and drop off your containers for inspection
  • Empty and triple rinse the containers
  • Do not remove the label
  • Remove lid and discard
  • Remove wire or plastic handles from pails
  • If possible, puncture holes in the container to ensure all liquid residue drains out

All containers are inspected before they can be accepted at Agrecovery collection sites. This ensures your safety and that of those operating the programme. Products belonging to our participating brand owners can be recycled for FREE. We'll also give you a collection receipt to prove you've recycled your containers through Agrecovery.

Types of plastic containers that you can recycle

Most plastic HDPE (2) agrichemical and animal health containers can be recycled through the Agrecovery programme, including some HDPE Plastic Pails. The containers and pails must be products of the brand owners that support the programme. If you have containers which are not covered under the programme you can still recycle these through the programme by purchasing “User Pays” stickers from the Agrecovery website. These stickers must be placed on your containers. Visit for a full list of eligible products.

About Agrecovery

Agrecovery was established in 2005 to address persistent ‘on farm’ waste issues and since our inception we’ve come a long way. The Agrecovery Container Recycling programme is an environmentally sustainable solution for the recovery of agrichemical and animal health plastic containers. Disposal of plastics is a persistent and growing problem for the primary sector throughout New Zealand, with millions of agrichemical and animal health containers used nationwide every year.

Compliance programmes and customer driven environmental standards are placing increased pressure on the primary sector to manage their environmental footprint in a positive way. The Agrecovery rural recycling programme enables farmers and growers to dispose of their plastic containers in a responsible way and provides a better environmental outcome than burning or dumping. Recycling your plastic containers through Agrecovery demonstrates your commitment to New Zealand’s environment.
