BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - This year’s Project Safe Send chemical collections in North Dakota are getting underway this week.

The first collection was scheduled Tuesday in Forman. Collections also are being held in 11 other cities this month, ending July 25 in Hillsboro.

The program gives farmers, ranchers, pesticide dealers and applicators, government agencies and homeowners a way to dispose of unusable herbicides, insecticides, rodenticides and fungicides free of charge. It’s funded by fees that pesticide manufacturers pay to register their products in North Dakota. Collected pesticides are shipped out of state for incineration.

People with more than 1,000 pounds of pesticides are asked to pre-register at least two days in advance. A maximum of 20,000 pounds of pesticides per participant will be accepted.
