The CleanFARMS pesticide collection campaign is coming to Ontario again in 2016. This program will not be run in Ontario again until 2019, so take advantage of this opportunity.
Read below for more details.
Farmers can safely dispose of unwanted or obsolete agricultural pesticides at specific locations across Ontario. This program is free of charge to farmers. It runs from September 20-30, 2016.
Check out the CleanFARMS website to find the nearest you. Collection sites will only be accepting targeted products from 9 AM to 4 PM at each location. Obsolete or unwanted agricultural pesticides should be identified with a Pest Control Product number on the label.
This program offers farmers an environmentally responsible way to dispose of old or unwanted product. It is offered in each province at least once every three years. Farmers drop off their obsolete materials at a designated collection site at no charge. The products are then transported to a high temperature incineration facility where they are safely disposed of.
Since the program launched in 1998, more than 2 million kilograms of obsolete pesticides have been collected and safely disposed of.
