Hazardous Waste Program
Missouri Pesticide Collection Program
This program has ended.
The department provided Missouri residents with a convenient, free opportunity to properly dispose of pesticides and herbicides.
Only material that could be clearly identified as an acceptable item was received in this free pesticide collection program.
There were a total of 17 events held in rural locations throughout the state.
The program collected just over 123,000 pounds of pesticide related wastes.
What was accepted?
|What was not accepted?|
All materials collected were managed as pesticide and herbicide waste and were field characterized, sampled (if necessary), segregated and placed into proper Department of Transportation shipping containers with approved labels and markings. The waste was transported and managed at an approved licensed disposal facility. Any materials brought to the collection events that were not clearly identifiable as pesticides or herbicides were not accepted.
Collection services were processed by the Environmental Quality Company and overseen by the department’s Environmental Services Program and Hazardous Waste Program staff. For more information or questions on the pesticide collection program, contact Dennis Hansen at 573-751-7560.
