With the Empty Container Management Program (MOA) now in place, growers in the Philippines can now return empty chemical pesticides containers to distributors and manufacturers. Typically, farmers in Benguet would “leave the empty containers everywhere,” said Mayor Felicio R. Bayacsan, representing local vegetable producers in the agreement.?

Now pesticide and fertilizer companies can retrieve the containers from the growers and fields. Bayacsan spoke with representatives of Syngenta and Bayer for the bottle, who want the bottles to be shredded to minimize the volume for easier packaging and transport.

Signatories to the MOA besides Bayacsan and Loo Barangay Captain Delino Dampilag Sr. include representatives of the Fertilizer and Pesticide Authority (FPA); Crop Protection Association of the Philippines; Philippine Integrated Crop Management Association; Integrated Waste Management, Inc.; Croplife Philippines and Newfoundland and Plastic Manufacturing Corporation.
