If you have excess pesticide or unwanted pesticide products, the disposal option will depend on the source/type of excess or unwanted product. Many states sponsor collection programs for unwanted pesticides. Eligibility rules vary from state to state. Collection programs are usually free, but not all materials are accepted.

The three sub-items within this section address disposal considerations for Excess Mixture and Excess Water After Use in Packinghouses or Greenhouses, Unneeded Product and Pesticide-Contaminated Clothing, and Rinsate and Materials from Clean-up of Spills or Leaks.
