[ARCHIVED] Maine's free, once-a-year Obsolete Pesticide Collection Program

Finally, a way to dispose of old, unusable pesticides that's safe, responsible, and free!

Mainers are urged to take advantage of this free opportunity to dispose of banned or unusable pesticides that they may have in their homes or elsewhere on their properties. This October, the Maine Board of Pesticides Control (BPC) will team up with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to dispose of banned pesticides or pesticides that have become caked, frozen, or otherwise rendered unusable.

This free disposal program is open to homeowners, family-owned farms and greenhouses. All people need to do is register by September 27, 2013.

Registration by September 27, 2013, is mandatory—drop-ins are not permitted. To register, get details, and learn important information about the temporary storage and transportation of obsolete pesticides, go to the BPC Web site at, or call 207-287-2731.
