Get Rid of Unusable Pesticides Safely

Farmers, ranchers, pesticide dealers and applicators, government agencies and homeowners with unusable pesticides can bring them to any of the Project Safe Send Sites listed below.

Project Safe Send is a safe, simple and non-regulatory program that helps people safely and legally get rid of unusable pesticides free of charge. Since 1992, thousands of people have brought in over 4 million pounds of pesticides to Project Safe Send.

The program accepts old, unusable or banned pesticides, including herbicides, insecticides, rodenticides and fungicides. For a list of accepted items, click on "Accepted Pesticides" in the left column. The collected pesticides are shipped out of state for incineration. Project Safe Send is funded through product registration fees paid by pesticide manufacturers.

People are urged to check their 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.

For more information on transporting your pesticides safely please view the additional information below.

If you are bringing more than 1,000 lbs please preregister with Jeremiah Lien at jjlien@nd.gov or 701-425-3016 to pre-register. A maximum of 20,000 pounds of pesticides per participant will be accepted.
