Cleanfarms Holding Unwanted Pesticides Collection Events This October

By Richard Wilkins, Provincial Specialist – Pesticide Regulatory, Regina

October 2020

This is a quick reminder that Cleanfarms will be running its long-standing unwanted pesticides and livestock/equine medications collection program in Saskatchewan in late October. If you find yourself with a left over supply of unwanted or obsolete farm chemicals, this program can help you solve that problem. 

Cleanfarms runs the collection program in the provinces/regions every three years on a rotating basis. The targeted regions this year includes Southern Saskatchewan. Northern Saskatchewan will have collection events in 2021. The dates for Southern Saskatchewan are October 26 to 30, 2020.

For information on what can be disposed of through these collection events and the dates and location of the collection events, please visit the Cleanfarms website.

Saskatchewan has made good use of this program in the past. From 2007 and 2019 collection events, approximately 670,000 kilograms of unwanted farm chemicals were collected. The last time the program was offered in Saskatchewan, approximately 185,000 kilograms of material was collected. 

The program is offered to producers at no cost. The ministry strongly encourages producers who have old, unwanted and obsolete pesticides and livestock medications to make use of this program to safely dispose of these products.
