BISMARCK — Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says farmers, ranchers, pesticide dealers and applicators, government agencies and homeowners can bring any unusable pesticides to any of the 12 Project Safe Send collections in July.
The program accepts old, unusable or banned pesticides, including herbicides, insecticides, rodenticides and fungicides. The collected pesticides are shipped out of state for incineration.
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. Pesticide rinse water and empty containers are no longer accepted.
To pre-register, obtain plastic bags or for more information, contact Jeremiah Lien at the North Dakota Department of Agriculture at 701-425-3016 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The collections will run from 8 a.m. to noon at the North Dakota Department of Transportation facilities in the following cities:
