Disposal of old livestock dips

I have in my possession a lot of old, expired dip and dose products. Can you advise me how to dispose of these products in a safe, environmentally-friendly way? 

Reply:
The removal and disposal of old livestock dips is possible: anyone can look on the AVCASA website and find a list of plastic recyclers for disposal of triple rinsed empty containers and disposal of obsolete pesticides. There is a sufficient number of service providers that can assist with this.
