Project Safe Send, North Dakota’s annual collection of unusable pesticides, will be conducted at 12 locations in July, with three locations in the Jamestown area.
“This is a good time to look through your barns, sheds, garages and storage areas for unusable pesticides,” said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. “With 12 collection sites across the state, it should be easy for everyone to participate in Project Safe Send and get rid of their unusable pesticides safely and at no charge.”
The collections are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (local time) at the following dates and sites. All collection sites are at North Dakota Department of Transportation maintenance facilities in or near the selected cities.
Harvey: July 10
Jamestown: July 19
Lisbon: July 20
People with more than 1,000 pounds of pesticides should preregister. No other preregistration is required. A maximum of 20,000 pounds of pesticides per participant will be accepted. Pesticide rinse water also will be accepted. The first 100 pounds of rinse water will be taken free of charge with a fee of $1 for each additional pound.
To preregister or obtain heavy-duty plastic transportation bags, contact Jeremiah Lien at 1-800-242-7535 or email@example.com.
