Do you have pesticides at your home, business or farm that you no longer need or use? If your answer is ‘yes,” then you’ll be interested to know that The NC Department of Agriculture’s Pesticide Disposal Assistance Program, in cooperation with the Macon County Extension Center and Macon County Government, will be offering this Pesticide Collection Day for local residents and the surrounding area.

Joe Deal, NCSU Extension Agriculture Agent in Livestock, Forages and Pastures will be the local contact for the event. The Collection will be from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday April 19th at the Environmental Resource Center on 1624 Lakeside Drive Franklin, NC.

Pesticides that will be accepted include the following: insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, fumigants, rodenticides and growth regulators. For pesticides with unreadable or missing labels, please contact the Cooperative Extension Office for instructions. Please save any portion of the label to help identify the material so you can be assisted with disposal. Unknown materials cannot be accepted. Other hazardous materials, such as paint, antifreeze, solvents, etc. will not be accepted at this collection day. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get rid of your unwanted dusty old pesticides!
