argh part III

Not the same product but the container is what this post will cover. When the concentrate is all used up, roughly mixed at 1.5 oz per gallon; what then to do with the empty container? This is herbicide, classified as a pesticide. According to the Ohio Dept of Agriculture, I take this empty container and triple rinse with water. I am to then puncture the container and REMOVE THE LABEL. Now I am to go into work today to do this with some 2 dozen empty containers. The triple rinse makes sense to me, infact that is how I do dishes any more, by sheer habit I triple rinse them. Puncture the container is a good one too, so container can not be used to hold another liquid or drinking water. The thing that I question is removing the label. A person not in my industry could find this empty container with no label and use it for something (even with the punture)... not a good thing, as this is poison. Next time you empty a jug of chlorine bleach just try to remove the label. Put into reasonable terms "its a f_____ beach". So weather being "not condusive to effective lawn treatments" there are a few maintenence items to be done today. So I will spend the next several hours peeling labels off the empty jugs.
