Project Safe Send

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. spends millions of dollars to get rid of weeds, rats, mosquitoes, and other annoying pests.

Although pesticides are helpful, they can also be very dangerous.

Project Safe Send has officially begun and is cleaning up North Dakota of these harmful chemicals one town at a time.

"If you spill that nothing will grow there for quite a while," says Jake Mein, Water treatment plant worker.

There's good reason why these barrels of liquid are protected by cages.

Jake Mein works at a water treatment plant.

He is only one of the many people stopping by Steele to get rid of some very dangerous chemicals.

This is Project Safe Send.

The Department of Agriculture program provides an easy outlet for people to safely dispose of some very unsafe pesticides.

These contractors are traveling until July 25th through 12 different locations.

Since Project Safe Send started in 1992 they have collected over 3 million pounds of pesticides.
