Project Safe Send, Waste Pesticide Collection Limits (06/16/16)

In 2015, Project Safe Send handled a record, 192 tons of waste pesticides. As a result, the funds available for collections in 2016 have been severely depleted and thus limits have been placed on how much material will be accepted.

Project Safe Send, Waste Pesticide Collection Limits

In 2015, Project Safe Send handled a record, 192 tons of waste pesticides. As a result, the funds available for collections in 2016 have been severely depleted and thus limits have been placed on how much material will be accepted.

A maximum of 3,000 pounds of pesticides per participant will be allowed. Pesticide rinse water and empty containers will not be accepted.

No pre-registration is required, but participants are strongly encouraged to check the North Dakota Department of Agriculture’s website prior to bringing pesticides to a collection site to ensure their site remains operational. Sites will only be operational until funding is depleted.

For more information, contact Jeremiah Lien at the North Dakota Department of Agriculture at (800) 242-7535 or jjlien@nd.gov.
