Pesticide Disposal Day a Success

The North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Camden County Center, in cooperation with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Pesticide Disposal Assistance Program organized a pesticide collection day on September 26th, 2023, for farmers and residents in Camden County and the surrounding area. This event afforded an opportunity to dispose of pesticides free of charge, in an environmentally responsible and legal manner.
The event was a huge success with a total of 706 containers weighing in at 2,931 pounds of unwanted pesticide collected and processed. This effort saved participants an estimated average of $7 per pound for a total savings of $20,517. Furthermore, the benefits from safeguarding the environment are incalculable.
