Bring in your old, unusable pesticides for safe disposal!

PLEASE NOTE: This event is now full. Thirty-two people have signed up to participate, and we are expecting 30,000 pounds of old and unusable pesticides. Thanks to everyone for making this a very successful collection event.

Join us at a FREE Agricultural Pesticide Collection Event on Saturday, November 18, 2017 in Mt. Angel!

This is a great opportunity for residents in Clackamas County to safely and anonymously dispose of old and unusable pesticides that can be difficult and expensive to get rid of.

Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District is partnering with Pudding River Watershed Council and the Pesticide Stewardship Partnership to offer this event. This collection event is for waste agricultural pesticides and pesticide containers. While the event’s intent is to focus on the Pudding River Watershed, all producers in the county are eligible and encouraged to participate.
