Remember, pesticides, even less toxic ones, are toxic chemicals and should always be disposed of safely. 
  • Drop off any unused pesticides at a Household Hazardous Waste drop-off location instead
  • Pesticides can also be dropped off at a Recovery Station's Special Waste drop-off area free of charge
  • Never pour unused pesticides outdoors or down storm drains
  • Never poue pesticides down indoor drains such as sinks, toilets and showers
