Pesticide Collection Day

Burgaw, NC – North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and Pender County Cooperative Extension are holding a Pesticide Collection Day for residents in Pender and surrounding counties. Collection will be day, April 25, 2024, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 801 S. Walker Street, Burgaw, North Carolina. The collection station will be in the driveway behind the Ag Building with the entrance to that driveway off Progress Drive. The local site manager will be Mr. Mark Seitz, County Extension Director, and Agriculture Agent for Pender County.

The goal of this program is to help homeowners and farmers remove unwanted and unused pesticides from their garages, storage sheds and barns. Over time, unused and improperly stored pesticides can cause significant structural and environmental damage, costing thousands of dollars to clean up. This program helps homeowners alleviate that risk.

Nearly all pesticide products will be accepted.  For liquid pesticide containers larger than five gallon or for unlabeled pesticides, please contact the Cooperative Extension Office for information before bringing them to the collection event.  No gas cylinders are accepted at the event; however, assistance information on how to dispose of these cylinders can be provided. Don’t miss this opportunity in Pender County.
