Indiana Pesticide Clean Sweep Program – Facts for Fancy Fruit

Indiana Pesticide Clean Sweep Program

Indiana Pesticide Clean Sweep Project is designed to collect and dispose of suspended, canceled, banned, unusable, opened, unopened or just unwanted pesticides (herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, rodenticides, miticides, etc.). It is sponsored by the Office of the Indiana State Chemist, with support from the U.S. EPA. The disposal service is free of charge up to 250 pounds per participant. Over 250 pounds there will be a $2 per pound charge. This is a great opportunity for you to legally dispose of unwanted products at little or no cost.
