Improper disposal of pesticides pose a great threat to water supplies, so the appropriate disposal of chemicals is key in minimizing hazardous environmental impacts.
Therefore, the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Montgomery County, in cooperation with the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Pesticide Disposal Assistance Program, a non-regulatory and cost-free program, will be offering a Pesticide Collection Day for residents in Montgomery County and all of the surrounding North Carolina counties.
Extension Horticulture Agent, Kaitlyn Lamaster, will be the local contact for the event. The Collection will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Montgomery County Agriculture Center located at 200 Glenn Rd., Troy, NC 27371.

Nearly all pesticide products will be accepted, including banned and outdated pesticides. For pesticides with unreadable or missing labels, contact the Montgomery County office for instructions. Participants are asked to save any portion of the label to help identify the material to be disposed of. Unknown materials cannot be accepted.
For gas cylinders or containers greater than five gallons in size, and for tips on transporting pesticides safely to the collection event, contact the extension office before the collection day for special instructions and information.
All questions and concerns can be directed to Kaitlyn Lamaster at (910) 576-6011 or by emailing kmlamast@ncsu.edu.
