Properly disposing of outdated or banned chemicals like pesticides can be costly and dangerous.
But the North Dakota Department of Agriculture gives everyone a chance to get rid of toxic substances every July... for free.
Project Safe Send is traveling around the state through the 25th stopping at department of Transportation facilities for a day.
Jeremiah Lien says It does not matter whether the owner of the products utilizes them commercially or for the home.
(Jeremiah Lien, Pesticide Outreach Specialist) "You don't want the stuff getting into the environment, or your drinking water, or where kids or somebody could stumble upon it and and get exposed... They can bring it here and drop it off. It's non-regulatory so so you don't have to worry about getting in trouble, so it's a great way to get rid of it.""
According to the Department of Agriculture, the project is funded through product registration fees already paid by pesticide manufacturers.
