The Georgia Department of Agriculture is hosting a Georgia Clean Day on May 3, 2022 from 9 am to 3 pm. The event will be at the Georgia National Fairgrounds 401 Larry Miller Pkwy, Perry, GA 31069. The purpose of this event is to collect and dispose of old unusable, or cancelled pesticides. You must pre-register for the event by April 28 at 4 pm with Rick Hayes at firstname.lastname@example.org with the pesticides that you’re bringing. For more information on this contact your County Extension Agent.
In Union County I will be hosting a ‘mini’ Georgia Clean Day on April 24 from 4 pm – 7:30 pm and April 25 from 8 am – 6 pm, at the Union County Schools Agriscience Center 22 Lovell Dr. Blairsville, GA. At this event you can bring your undesired pesticides and I will pre-register them for you and take them to the Georgia Department of Agriculture event in Perry. This mini Georgia Clean Day will make the state event more accessible to people in North Georgia. If you have questions about the mini Georgia Clean Day contact me at Jacob.Williams@uga.edu.
