Waste Pesticide Collections Slated for July and August

Farmers, ranchers, pesticide dealers and applicators, government agencies and homeowners with unusable pesticides can bring them to Project Safe Send. The collected pesticides are shipped out of state for incineration.

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 collection is funded through product registration fees paid by pesticide manufacturers.

The program accepts old, unusable or banned pesticides, including herbicides, insecticides, rodenticides and fungicides. Rinsates, adjuvants, solvents, paints and other hazardous materials will not be accepted.

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.

People with more than 1,000 pounds of pesticides should pre-register one week prior to delivery. No other pre-registration is required. A maximum of 20,000 pounds of pesticides per participant will be accepted. Contact Jeremiah Lien to pre-register.   

All collection sites are located at North Dakota Department of Transportation facilities. Open 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (local time).
