Spring Garden Tips
Disposing Pesticides

Dispose of outdated pesticides and those you no longer use properly.  Contact your local municipality’s department of public works, Department of Natural Resources or Extension Service for a recommendation on handling these materials properly.  Many communities sponsor a Clean Sweep Program giving homeowners an opportunity to dispose of hazardous household waste, including pesticides, in the safest method possible.  Reduce your use of chemicals in the future to eliminate this extra task in the future.
