SK Obsolete Pesticide and Livestock /Equine Medication collection -from October 27 – 31, 2014

Farmers can safely dispose of unwanted agricultural pesticides and livestock/equine medications from October 27 – 31, 2014.

To find more information on collection sites please  click this link.

CleanFARMS, an industry-led, national not-for-profit agricultural waste management organization, in partnership with the Canadian Animal Health Institute (CAHI) is offering this program, which comes at no charge to farmers, this fall.

“The Canadian Animal Health Institute’s participation in this program is just one part of our industry’s commitment to safely managing animal medications throughout their lifecycle,” said Jean Szkotnicki, President of CAHI.  “Our members are happy to be able to provide Saskatchewan’s livestock and equine community with this service.”

Saskatchewan’s farmers have a long history of good stewardship practices. Since 1998, farmers in Saskatchewan have returned more than 380,000 kilograms of obsolete pesticides. The last time the program was delivered in 2012 more than 60,000 kilograms of product was collected and safely destroyed, which is a testament to Saskatchewan farmers’ commitment to being responsible stewards of the land. This year is the first time in Saskatchewan that livestock and equine medications have been added to the program.

“We are pleased that the previous collections in Saskatchewan have been huge successes,” says Barry Friesen, general manager of CleanFARMS. “The participation of Saskatchewan farmers just goes to show how committed they are to protecting the environment.”

After collection, the pesticides and medications are taken to a licensed waste management facility where they are disposed of through high temperature incineration.

The following locations will be accepting obsolete pesticides and livestock/equine medications from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on the dates specified:
