Minibulk Changes Coming

New USEPA regulations that become effective in 2011 will require changes in the way our industry utilizes portable refillable containers (PRCs) otherwise known as minibulks.  You may have received a poster from Crop Life America illustrating the major changes, and there are many fine points as well.  IFCA has posted an industry overview of the changes on our website at www.ifca.comIt's not too early to start planning how you will incorporate these changes at your facility.

IFCA is also organizing a minibulk collection this September.  IFCA retail members should watch for a letter from IFCA explaining the collection program which includes a registration form and tank cleaning guidelines.  The cost to participate is $15 per tank and we'll have a dozen or so collection sites around the state.
