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, approximately 3 million kilograms of obsolete pesticides have been collected and safely disposed of.
