MELFORT, Sask. – Cleanfarms will visit six regions in Canada this fall to collect unwanted, old agricultural pesticides and obsolete livestock, equine and poultry medications.
Executive Director Barry Friesen said farmers appreciate the program and wait for it to return to their region every three years so they can dispose of unwanted agricultural materials safely.
“A program to collect old, unwanted pesticides has been in place since 1998. In 2010, we became responsible for it and we know from experience and hearing from farmers that this program is very important to them in managing on-farm waste materials safely,” Friesen said. “The program is designed to help them keep their farms clean and sustainable and to keep these materials out of landfills and the environment.”
The Cleanfarms’ 2022 program will include 81 collection events in British Columbia, Northern Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, and Newfoundland.Click here to see more...
