Attention all agricultural producers! Take advantage of this opportunity to safely and anonymously dispose of old and unusable agricultural pesticides in Estacada on Friday, April 28, 2017.
Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District is partnering with Clackamas River Water Providers, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and Oregon Department of Agriculture to offer a 2017 Pesticide Round-up! This free collection event is for old restricted pesticides or other unusable pesticides from producers. We focus on the Clackamas River watershed, but all producers in the county are eligible and encouraged to participate.
You must pre-register with Clean Harbors so they are prepared to receive your chemicals. Due to limited funding, this event is first reserved, first served. Complete and send application by mail, fax, or e-mail to Clean Harbors Environmental by April 21, 2017. After that date, call Clean Harbors for any open reservations.

Plastic Container Recycle
We will also collect clean, “dirt and residue free”, triple rinsed plastic containers.
Check this website for information on preparing containers to recycle.
All size containers up to 55-gallon capacity plastic drums can be accepted. Containers need to be made from high density polyethylene (HDPE) and embossed with recycling symbol #2.
No pre-registration is needed for dropping off empty, triple-rinsed pesticide containers. This is a free service.
