Agricultural producers, dealers, applicators and homeowners who are storing unusable pesticides will have a safe, legal and free opportunity to dispose of them this May when the Idaho State Department of Agriculture conducts collections in Sandpoint, Coeur d'Alene, Moscow, Lewiston, Weiser, Caldwell and Grand View.
Producers with usable herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and rodenticides should call Rodney Awe of the Department's Pesticide Disposal Program at 332-8615 to pre-register for the collection activities. There will be a collection scheduled for each of these cities during the week of May 15, 2000.
Participation is confidential, pre-registration is required and must be received by the department no later than April 14, 2000. No fee will be charged for the first 1,000 pounds per participant. The ISDA will provide bill-of-lading and overpack bags for all materials being disposed.
