Clean Day Pesticide Collection

A Clean Day Program is planned for Baldwin, Clarke, Conecuh, Escambia, Mobile, Monroe and Washington Counties on December 14, registration required. This program will allow you, at no cost, to bring up to 1,000 pounds of unwanted pesticides for safe and environmentally sound disposal. Products that will be disposed of include pesticides, insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, and rodenticides.

Remember, you will not be charged for disposal of up to 1,000 pounds of material and there will be no questions asked as to why you have any product.

Please complete the Clean Day Pesticide Collection Form and return to Ellen Huckabay at knighec@aces.edu.

You will be contacted before the actual collection date with all the details, so it is very important that the form is completely filled with adequate and accurate contact information.

For more information, call the Baldwin County Extension Office at 251-937-7176.
