PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) will host a series of waste pesticide collections in four southeastern Minnesota counties from Tuesday, August 26, through Thursday, August 28, 2014.

The collections are open to farmers, homeowners, commercial pesticide applicators, golf courses, lawn care companies, structural pest control operators and other pesticide users. No pre-registration is required.

Collection sites will accept up to 300 pounds of eligible product at no cost. MDA requests that citizens call 651-201-6562 to provide advance notification if they wish to drop off more than 300 pounds of product.
