Free pesticide disposal scheduled next week

The Idaho State Department of Agriculture is holding free pesticide drop-off events around eastern Idaho next week.

Agricultural producers, dealers and homeowners can bring their unused pesticides to one of four locations. Herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, rodenticides — or anything with a “cide” — will be accepted, according to the department. Fertilizer, micronutrients, paint, solvents and motor oil will not be accepted.

Drop-off dates and locations are listed below. Each drop-off is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

• Monday: Madison County Transfer Station, 530 Airport Road, Rexburg.

• Tuesday: Bonneville County Transfer Station, 2455 Hemmert Ave., Idaho Falls.

• Wednesday: Eastern Idaho State Fairgrounds, 97 Park St., Blackfoot.

• Thursday: Power County Transfer Station, 2950 Landfill Road, American Falls.
