Pesticides & Herbicides

Banned Toxins

Ideally, pesticides and herbicides should be used up according to label directions unless the product contains a banned ingredient such as Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) or Chlordane.


If you no longer need a product, consider donating it to a local garden club. If that is not possible, safely store the product until your regular collection day and place these items in a separate open box a few feet from your garbage.
