A 2014 pesticide clean day has been announced for our area. This program is organized and administered by The Georgia Department of Agriculture, through funding provided by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This program gives everyone an opportunity to properly dispose of old, unusable pesticides that are no longer needed or that are no longer labeled. The collected materials are turned over to a hazardous waste contractor for disposal. There is no fee charged to participate in this program but you must pre-register by October 27, 2014.
Take advantage of this opportunity to eliminate and minimize liabilities associated with continued storage of unwanted/unlabeled wastes on your property and/or farm.
Call the Brooks County Extension office if you need additional information at 263-4103. In order to participate, you must register materials. Here is a 2014 Georgia Clean Day Registration Form.
