There will be two events next week for B.C. Peace region farmers looking to get rid of old pesticides and livestock medications.
Cleanfarms will be in Fort St. John Oct. 16 and Dawson Creek Oct. 17 to collect old, unwanted agricultural pesticides and obsolete livestock/equine medications from farmers in the region.
Unwanted agricultural and commercial pesticides must be identified with a Pest Control Product number on the label to be accepted.
Unwanted medications must be identified with a DIN number, serial number or Pest Control Product number on the label.
Fertilizer, medicated feed, ear tags, premises disinfectants, and any other household or veterinary clinic waste is not accepted.
Cleanfarms will be at Nutrien Ag Solutions in Fort St. John on Oct. 16, and Richardson Pioneer in Dawson Creek on Oct. 17.
Collection will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.
The collection program is funded by the crop protection industry and the Canadian Animal Health Institute.
