The drum reconditioning industry in the United States currently reconditions many pesticide containers. Cost incentives to recondition pesticide containers exist, but the problems of residual pesticide and waste-water treatment require study. Reconditioning is accomplished by two different methods -- use of heated chemical solutions or incineration followed by an abrasive treatment. This paper covers one phase of several related which addressed collection and impoundment, preprocessing, movement of containers to commercial reconditioning facilities or to scrap, processing in commercial facilities, washwater treatment, and container scrap off-gas treatment.
