Disposal Tips

Dispose of leftover pesticides in an environmentally responsible way. Do not:

  • Dump pesticides into the garbage as these chemicals will eventually leach out of the landfill and enter the natural environment

  • Flush pesticides down your toilet, sink, or drain. These chemicals can harm septic systems and contaminate the natural environment

  • Pour or hose pesticides down storm drains. Rainwater will mix with chemicals that will harm our watershed, flowing unchecked into the region's creeks, streams, lakes and eventually the Pacific Ocean.
