CleanFARMS collects and safely disposes of obsolete or otherwise unwanted agricultural pesticides. The 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 pesticides 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 1.8 million kilograms of obsolete pesticides have been collected and safely disposed of.
CleanFARMS will be operating collection programs in Ontario and Alberta in 2013.
