MILLION-POUND COLLECTION MARK
Cleansweep, the project that offers a safe, convenient and cost-effective mechanism
for agricultural operations, golf courses and pest control companies to properly
dispose of canceled, suspended and unusable pesticides, has now collected and
disposed of more than 1 million pounds of these unwanted chemical materials.
than 1,400 participants in 65 Florida counties have disposed of materials. The
project will continue to offer pickup and disposal service statewide as long as
funding for the calendar year remains available.
and instructions on how to sign up for the free pickup service are available by
calling (877) 851-5285. The program is expected to have enough monetary backing
to provide the disposal service through about June, so its important to
call early to reserve your spot on the list.
