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.
