Collection Schedule:

The 2020 pesticide waste collection dates and locations are as follows:

September 15: Kalispell

September 16: Polson

Participants must pre-register their unusable pesticides with the Montana Department of Agriculture before the disposal event.

Late registrations will not be considered.

Annual pesticide waste disposal events began in 1994. More than 700,000 pounds of pesticide waste have been collected from more than 1,800 participants. Common pesticides that have been brought to collection events include DDT, pentachlorophenol, dinoseb, and strychnine.

Disposal Fees

The cost for disposing pesticides is FREE for the first 200 pounds. For amounts that exceed 200 pounds, the cost is $1 per pound with a minimum charge of $5. Please come prepared to pay using a check made out to the Montana Department of Agriculture. Products are weighed on site. The disposal fee for pesticides containing dioxins, dioxin precursors, or any product that may require special packing at the site may incur higher fees. Please be specific about products being disposed on your registration and be prepared for products to be inspected at the site.
