Agricultural Abandoned Pesticide Program

Ag Department
Since 2005, the Agricultural Abandoned Pesticide Program has overseen the collection of 3,646,397 pounds of unwanted pesticide in counties across Arkansas. Participation in collection events is free and anonymous to farmers and other non-industrial landowners. The Agricultural Abandoned Pesticide Program is administered by the Arkansas Agriculture Department’s State Plant Board.

Commonly collected items include old or outdated pesticides such as calcium arsenate, 2,4,5-T, sodium cyanide, lindane, and chlordane, as well as registered pesticides that are unusable because they have been exposed to the elements or have been held over from previous growing seasons such as glyphosate products and 2,4-D.     MORE
