How often are unwanted pesticide and animal medication collections available in each region?
Cleanfarms operates collection programs for obsolete pesticides and livestock/equine medications in each region, once every three years, in partnership with CropLife Canada and the Canadian Animal Health Institute.
How do I know when unwanted pesticides and animal medications will be collected near me?
Every summer, we post new information about collection sites, dates, times and exact locations. And we tweet out information every week, when collections are taking place. Please check back here and if you haven’t yet, come follow us (@cleanfarms) on Twitter.
Who can use this program?
This program is intended for farmers to dispose of small amounts of old or unused product.
It is not intended for veterinary hospitals, government organizations or municipalities that are not directly involved in agricultural production or research.
Is it a free service?
Farmers drop off their obsolete materials at a designated collection site at no charge and the products are transported to a high temperature incineration facility where they are safely disposed.
