Pesticide Clean Sweep 2020

August 5, 2020
Clean Sweep 2020

Indiana Pesticide Clean Sweep Project collects and disposes of suspended, canceled, banned, unusable, opened, unopened or just unwanted pesticides (weed killers, insecticides, rodenticides, fungicides, miticides, etc.).

The event will take place on August 18, 2020 from 9am - 3pm at the Noble County Fairgrounds (580 Fair Street, Kendallville). Other dates are scheduled for sites across Indiana.

This disposal service is free for up to 250 pounds per participant. Over 250 pounds there will be a $2.00 per pound charge. This is a great opportunity for you to legally dispose of unwanted products at little or no cost.

Instructions: Complete the Pesticide Clean Sweep Planning Form to the best of your ability (linked below). Mail, fax or e-mail the completed form to Garret Creason at 765-494-4331 or gcreaso@purdue.edu no later than Mon., August 10, 2020. Then bring your labeled, leak free and safe to transport containers to the collection site. DO NOT mix materials. In case of an emergency, you should bring with you a list of products you are carrying and a contact phone number.

COVID-19 Guidelines: When you arrive to drop off materials please stay in your vehicle and a team member will check you in. Our team will be unloading one vehicle at a time to maintain physical distancing. If you must exit your vehicle, face masks are encouraged.

Schools, golf courses, nurseries, farmers, ag dealers, government units, or any others are eligible to participate.

The project is sponsored by the Office of Indiana State Chemist (OISC). OISC reserves the right to cancel this Pesticide Clean Sweep Project if there is not adequate demand. Participants submitting the enclosed planning form by August 10, 2020 will be contacted immediately if cancellation is necessary.
