CleanFARMS, in partnership with the Canadian Animal Health Institute, will be operating collection programs for both obsolete pesticides and livestock medications in the Northern Alberta, Peace Region of British Columbia, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Ontario in 2016.

Obsolete or unwanted agricultural pesticides (identified with a Pest Control Product number on the label) are usually accepted, as well as livestock medications that are used by primary producers in the rearing of animals in an agricultural context (identified with a DIN number, Ser. Number or Pest Control Product number on the label).

This program offers farmers an environmentally responsible way to dispose of old or unwanted product. It is offered in each province at least once every three years. Farmers drop off their obsolete materials at a designated collection site at no charge. The products are then transported to a high temperature incineration facility where they are safely disposed of.

Since the program launched in 1998, more than 2 million kilograms of obsolete pesticides have been collected and safely disposed of.
