Several AL counties added to Clean Day Waste Pesticide Collection days on 8/28-29

Posted: Updated:

Agriculture & Industries Commissioner John McMillan announced Wednesday that a Clean Day Waste Pesticide Collection will be held in numerous counties across the state on August 28 and 29.

Scheduled for August 28 are the counties of: Cullman, Jackson, Lauderdale, Limestone, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, and Marshall.

Scheduled for August 29 are the counties of: Autauga, Bibb, Chilton, Coosa, Dallas, Elmore, Lowndes, Perry and Shelby.

The Clean Day Waste Pesticide Collection Program is sponsored by Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries along with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System with funding provided by a grant from US Environmental Protection Agency Region 4.

"The Clean Day Waste Pesticide Collection Program helps farmers, small businesses, households, and other pesticide users to properly dispose of unwanted and unusable pesticides," said McMillan.  The program is offered to participants free of charge.

Unusable and unwanted pesticides must be disposed of according to label instructions.  It is illegal to bury, burn, or dump a pesticide.  State sponsored waste pesticide collections provide a means to remove these wastes and help pesticide users comply with the law while ensuring the safety of the environment.

In order to participate in the program, pre-registration is required with your local county agent. More information is available on the attached registration form.
