This event is now full. We’re happy to saw that we have allocated all of the monies provided to the District by Department of Environmental Quality for this collection event. Thank you to everyone who shared this information and who chose to participate. We’re pleased to help reduce the amount of pesticides in Clackamas County and the Lower Willamette Watershed.

Register to participate in a FREE Agricultural Pesticide Collection Event on Friday, June 1, 2018 in Molalla!

This is a great opportunity for producers and other commercial and institutional pesticide users in Clackamas County to safely and anonymously dispose of old, unused, or restricted pesticides that can be difficult and expensive to get rid of.

This collection event is for waste agricultural pesticides and pesticide containers. Pesticides include: insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, as well as surfactants and adjuvants that are mixed with pesticides.

While the event’s intent is to focus on the Pudding River Watershed, all producers in the Northern Willamette Valley are eligible and encouraged to participate.
