The MDA is hosting a waste pesticide collection event on Monday, October 26 for those in Anoka, Hennepin, and Isanti counties. Through this free event, homeowners, businesses, and farmers can safely dispose of unwanted and unusable pesticides.
The program accepts unwanted and unusable agricultural and consumer-type pesticides including insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, and rodenticides. However, crop oils, adjuvants, pesticide rinsate, fertilizer, treated seed, contaminated soil, and empty pesticide containers are not accepted.
The collection is open to farmers, homeowners, commercial pesticide applicators, golf courses, lawn care companies, structural pest control operators, and other pesticide users. No pre-registration is required.
