PHILADELPHIA – The Ag Container Recycling Council (ACRC) has announced its 20th Anniversary Celebration and Reception on Wednesday, Feb. 29 in Washington, D.C. FMC personnel will attend the event along with others who support the recycling of agricultural and pesticide containers. The event will begin at 4 p.m. (EST) and will include speakers Congressman Bob Goodlatte; Nancy Fitz, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; and Bill Spencer, Arysta LifeScience North America LLC and Chairman of the ACRC Executive Board.

“This celebration is a milestone for ACRC, and FMC is proud to support its ongoing achievements in recycling and container stewardship,” said Bob Trogele, Ph.D., FMC North America Area Director.

ACRC member companies, including FMC Agricultural Products, have funded a nationwide program for the collection and recycling of triple-rinsed plastic agricultural and specialty pesticide containers since 1992. In its 20 years of existence, the ACRC program has recycled more than 125 million pounds of HDPE plastic.
