Project Safe Send Waste Pesticide Collection Dates and Location (07/01/21)

Body

Farmers, ranchers, pesticide dealers and applicators, government agencies and homeowners should bring unusable pesticides to any of the 12 Project Safe Send collections in July.

It is a safe, simple and non-regulatory program that helps people easily and legally get rid of unusable pesticides at no charge.

The program accepts old, unusable or banned pesticides, including herbicides, insecticides, rodenticides and fungicides. Project Safe Send is funded through product registration fees paid by pesticide manufacturers.

Check your storage areas for any unusable pesticides and safely set them aside for Project Safe Send. If the containers are deteriorating or leaking, pack them in larger containers with absorbent materials. Free heavy-duty plastic bags are available from the North Dakota Department of Agriculture if needed.

People with more than 1,000 pounds of pesticides should pre-register one week prior to delivery. No other pre-registration is required. New for 2021:  a maximum of 5,000 pounds of pesticides per participant will be accepted. Each participant is limited to one shuttle. Pesticide rinse water and empty containers are no longer accepted.

To pre-register, obtain plastic bags or for more information, contact Jerry Sauter at the North Dakota Department of Agriculture at 701-328-2980 or jdsauter@nd.gov.
