Unused pesticide is checked at a collection site. Disposal is free.

A maximum of 3,000 pounds of pesticides per participant will be accepted. Pesticide rinse water and empty containers will no longer be accepted.

No pre-registration is required, but check the North Dakota Department of Agriculture’s website https://www.nd.gov/ndda/program/project-safe-send prior to bringing pesticides to a collection site to ensure their site remains operational. Sites will only be operational until funding is depleted.

“Over the past 24 years, thousands of people have brought more than four million pounds of these chemicals to Project Safe Send,” says Doug Goehring, North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner. “It is a safe, simple and non-regulatory program that helps people safely and legally get rid of unusable pesticides at no charge.”

The program accepts old, unusable or banned pesticides, including herbicides, insecticides, rodenticides and fungicides. The collected pesticides are shipped out of state for incineration. Project Safe Send is funded through product registration fees paid by pesticide manufacturers.

“Check your storage areas for any unusable pesticides and safely set them aside for Project Safe Send,” Goehring advises. “If the containers are deteriorating or leaking, pack them in larger containers with absorbent materials. Free heavy-duty plastic bags are available from the North Dakota Department of Agriculture if needed.”

To obtain plastic bags or for more information, contact Jeremiah Lien at the North Dakota Department of Agriculture at (800) 242-7535 or jjlien@nd.gov.
