Project Safe Send collections scheduled in ND

BISMARCK — North Dakota's Agriculture Department has scheduled a dozen sites for this year's round of Project Safe Send chemical collections.

The program gives state residents 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.

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says that over the past 20 years, thousands of people have brought more than 3 million pounds of chemicals to Project Safe Send sites.

This year's collections begin July 9 in Underwood and end July 25 in Casselton. In between there will be collections in Kenmare, Minot, Watford City, Bowman, Ashley, Jamestown, Cooperstown, Wahpeton, Adams and Grand Forks. Details can be found at http://www.nd.gov/ndda/ .
