The Missouri Department of Natural Resources will resume their pesticide collection program next month, with the first of six dropoff opportunities for farmers and residents set for Kirksville on June 13th. Program coordinator CJ Plassmeyer says eligible Missouri farms and households can bring their unwanted pesticides and similar products for collection and proper disposal.



Plassmeyer says at the dropoff site, pesticides will be unloaded by the contractors who will prepare them for disposal.



The first collection event takes place June 13th at the NEMO Fairgrounds in Kirksville from 8 a.m. to noon. There will also be a collection event on August 29th in Albany at the Hundley-Whaley Research Center. Details on each of the other dropoffs along with safety precautions for transporting pesticides to the dropoff can be found on the Missouri Department of Natural Resources website
