Grande Prairie and area farmers who have unwanted agricultural pesticides or livestock medications will be able to safely get rid of certain items on October 18th.
Grande Prairie Unwanted Pesticides & Animal Meds Collection will accept any unwanted or “obsolete” agricultural pesticides, so long as it contains a pest control product number on the label. They will also take livestock medications used in the rearing of animals, as long as it can be identified with a DIN, serial number, or pest control product number on the label.
The collection will take place at the Grande Prairie UFA Farm & Ranch Supply Store at 15602 101 Street. For a full list of what will and will not be accepted, visit ClearFarms’ website.
