    BISMARCK, ND (NDDA) - Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says farmers, ranchers, pesticide dealers and applicators, government agencies and homeowners should bring any unusable pesticides to any of the 12 Project Safe Send collections in July.

    "Over the past 26 years, thousands of people have brought more than 4.4 million pounds of these chemicals to Project Safe Send," Goehring said. "It is a safe, simple and non-regulatory program that helps people safely and legally get rid of unusable pesticides at no charge."

    The program accepts old, unusable or banned pesticides, including herbicides, insecticides, rodenticides and fungicides. The collected pesticides are shipped out of state for incineration. Project Safe Send is funded through product registration fees paid by pesticide manufacturers.

    "Check your storage areas for any unusable pesticides and safely set them aside for Project Safe Send," Goehring said. "If the containers are deteriorating or leaking, pack them in larger containers with absorbent materials. Free heavy-duty plastic bags are available from the North Dakota Department of Agriculture if needed."

    People with more than 1,000 pounds of pesticides should pre-register one week prior to delivery. No other pre-registration is required. A maximum of 20,000 pounds of pesticides per participant will be accepted. Pesticide rinse water and empty containers are no longer accepted. To pre-register, obtain plastic bags or for more information, contact Jeremiah Lien at the North Dakota Department of Agriculture at 701-425-3016 or jjliennd.gov.
    
    The collections will run from 8 a.m. to noon local time at the North Dakota Department of Transportation facilities in the following cities:

    July 10 Lisbon 12999 Hwy. 27
    July 11 Valley City 1524 8th Ave. SW
