The Georgia Department of Agriculture is pleased to announce our next Clean Day pesticide waste collection event. The event will be held Wednesday, March 29, 2023, in Coffee County at the Tri County Gin in Douglas, Georgia.
Clean Day is a program that gives everyone an opportunity to discard old, unusable, or cancelled pesticides to a hazardous waste contractor for disposal. Pesticides in leaking containers or disposed of improperly may cause environmental damage by contaminating water supplies or harming people and wildlife. Some pesticides that have been used in the past are now in need of proper disposal.
Participation in the Clean Day Program remains free of charge to all private and commercial applicators with the understanding that the event is designed and intended for farmers, lawn care, golf courses, and pest control companies.
The Georgia Department of Agriculture will be requiring pre-registration for the events. For more details regarding Clean Day, go to the following website: https://agr.georgia.gov/events/2023/pesticide-clean-day-event-coffee-county
If we can be of assistance at Worth County Extension, please let us know.
