In partnership with the Canadian Animal Health Institute (CAHI), CleanFARMS is inviting Saskatchewan farmers to safely dispose of their obsolete pesticides and livestock medications from Oct. 23 – 27.

The obsolete pesticide and livestock (including equine) medication collection program is a national program that is free of charge for farmers and comes to each province every three years. After collection, the unwanted pesticides and livestock medications are taken to a licensed waste management facility, and are disposed of through high temperature incineration.

In between collection periods, farmers are asked to safely store their unwanted pesticides and livestock medications until they can be properly disposed of through the program.

Participants can drop off their pesticides and livestock medications at the following CAAR member locations from 9 am until 4 pm on the dates specified:
