The Missouri Pesticide Collection Program will come to Chillicothe this summer. The program is designed to help protect human health and the environment by collecting and ensuring safe disposal of waste pesticides from Missouri farmers and households, and to do this while educating Missouri citizens about how to properly manage and reduce pesticide waste.
All pesticides collected during the event are transported off-site by a licensed hazardous waste contractor to a permitted hazardous waste incineration facility for disposal.
They will accept all pesticides from Missouri farmers and households, including, but not limited to: Fungicides, Herbicides, Insecticides, Rodenticides, Fertilizers containing pesticides, De-wormers, and fly-tags.
They do ask that you call if bringing bulk containers of pesticides.
A collection event will be June 11th from 8:00 am to Noon at the Litton Agri-Science Learning Center.
