The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, in cooperation with the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Pamlico Center, will be offering a Free Pesticide Collection/Disposal Day for residents in Pamlico and surrounding counties.

The local site manager will be Daniel Simpson, Agricultural Extension Agent for Pamlico County. Collection will take place on March 13, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Pamlico County Historical Association Museum parking lot.

Nearly all pesticide products will be accepted. Please save any portion of the label to help identify the material so you can be assisted with disposal. For liquid pesticide containers larger than 5 gallons or for unlabeled pesticides, please contact the Cooperative Extension Office for information before bringing to the collection event. For tips on transporting the pesticides safely to the Collection event, contact the Extension Office. No gas cylinders are accepted at the event; however, assistance information can be provided.

Each year the Pesticide Disposal Assistance Program ( visits between 40-50 counties to collect unwanted and unused pesticides through this NON-regulatory amnesty Program. This means that a Collection Day of this kind only happens about once every other year in each county!

Contact the Cooperative Extension Office for more information.
