CleanFARMS Ontario and partner, Croplife Canada has announced 28 one-day-only drop off locations across the province that will accept obsolete and unwanted pesticides for free. The 2019 collection program will run Sept. 20 to Oct. 1, 2019.

Once collected, a licensed hazardous waste hauler will safely manage the products and send them for environmentally responsible disposal via high temperature incineration.

Each drop-off site lasts only for a single day, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The program, which began in 1998 has collected over 500,000 kgs. of obsolete pesticides, with about 120,000 kgs. collected in 2013 alone. The next collection in Ontario will take place in 2022.
