CleanFARMS has organized an unwanted pesticide collection for regions of B.C. for the fall of 2014. The program provides B.C. agriculture producers the opportunity to safely dispose of their unwanted, obsolete pesticides, free of charge. Commercial and restricted pesticides from farms, greenhouses, golf courses, the turf industry, landscape companies and vegetative management industries will be accepted.
The pesticides must be brought in a secure container with the product label attached. If there is no label, identify the container as ‘unknown pesticide’ and ensure that containers are not leaking.
The Comox Valley collection will be Friday, Oct. 14, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Comox Valley Waste Management Centre – 2400 Bevan Rd., Cumberland. For more info call 250-334-6000.
