Annual Pesticide Collection Effort Now Underway

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota's annual pesticide collection effort is now underway. 

Farmers, ranchers, pesticide dealers and applicators, government agencies and homeowners can bring their unusable pesticides to any of the scheduled collections.

Project Safe Send accepts old, unusable or banned pesticides, including herbicides, insecticides, rodenticides and fungicides. The pesticides are shipped out of state and incinerated.

People with more than 1,000 pounds of pesticides should pre-register. No other pre-registration is required. A maximum of 20,000 pounds of pesticides per participant will be accepted. Pesticide rinse water also will be accepted. The first 100 pounds of rinse water will be taken free of charge; a fee will be applied for each additional pound.

To pre-register, obtain plastic bags or for more information, contact Jeremiah Lien at the North Dakota Department of Agriculture at (800) 242-7535 or jjlien@nd.gov.

The collections will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. local time at the North Dakota Department of Transportation facilities in the following cities:
