CleanFARMS is running a free obsolete pesticide and livestock medication collection program in Manitoba from Oct. 24-28.

Farmers and other users are encouraged to bring in an agricultural pesticide or livestock medication (no needles/sharps) into any of the 19 designated agri-retail collection locations during the collection period. A licensed waste hauler will safely manage the products and send them for environmentally responsible disposal via high temperature incineration.

The obsolete pesticide and livestock medication collection program is funded by the registrants/manufacturers of the products as part of their commitment to product stewardship. The program is delivered in each region of the country every three years. Since the program was first delivered in 1998, more than 2.4 million kilograms of pesticide have been collected and safely disposed of.

Participants can drop off their pesticides and livestock medication at the following CAAR member locations:

- Richardson Pioneer (Swan River, Shoal Lake, Steinbach)

- Dauphin Co-op (Dauphin)

- RedFern Farm Services Ltd. (Virden)

- GJ Chemical Company Ltd. (Altona, Arnaud)

- Double Diamond Farm Supply (Snowflake)

- Paterson Grain (Niverville, Holland)

- Portage Co-op (Portage La Prairie)
