News : save the date to turn in unwanted pesticides to the DNR
Posted by John on 2013/3/26 8:10:00 (478 reads) News by the same author

Maryville and Trenton are locations that the Missouri Department of Natural Resources plans to host collection events in April to help persons rid their homes and farms of unwanted pesticides and related chemicals. The program is offered FREE of charge.


The D-N-R said the Trenton collection will be Saturday April 20th with more details to be announced as they get finalized. Before then, Maryville will host the collection on April 6th from 8 to 3 o’clock at the Nodaway county maintenance barn.

The events, part of the Missouri Pesticide Collection Program, allow for the safe and legal disposal of pesticides, fungicides, insecticides, rodenticides, de-wormers, fly tags and fertilizers containing herbicides or pesticides.

This is the second year of the Missouri Pesticide Roundup Program. Nine events were held around the state last year, collecting more than 68 thousand pounds of pesticide waste. More information on the Missouri Pesticide Collection Program is available online dnr.mo.gov/env/hwp/pesticide. The program is funded through a hazardous waste enforcement settlement that resulted in more than $1 million being set aside for the effort. Natural Resources officials hired an independent contractor to conduct the collection events under the supervision of the department. Notices mailed to farmers indicate future collection sites after Trenton are at Elsberry, Lamar, Salem, and Clinton.
