Dispose of unwanted pesticides
An Indiana Pesticide Clean Sweep Project designed to collect and dispose of unwanted pesticides is being sponsored by the Office of Indiana State Chemist. The program will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 22 at the Clark County 4-H Center, 9608 Ind. 62, Charlestown.
This disposal service is free of charge up to 250 pounds per participant. A $2-per-pound fee will be assessed on top of that.
Participants must fill out a Pesticide Clean Sweep Planning Form by Monday, July 29, and return it to Kevin Neal at the OISC. Forms are available from the Clark County Extension office at the fairgrounds.
