Co-op & Cleanfarms: Working Together to Redirect Waste
October 6, 2022

We have partnered with Cleanfarms to help reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills or disposed of improperly. Click here for directions to the collection site.

On October 28th, our Agro Centre will be working
with Cleanfarms to collect and safely dispose of old or unwanted agricultural pesticides and obsolete livestock, equine and poultry medications...at NO COST to you. 


The last time this program was held in 2019 a total of 214,618 kgs of unwanted pesticides and 5,842 kgs of obsolete animal medications were collected. Don't miss your chance, as the next opportunity to dispose of these unwanted materials will be in three years, in the fall of 2025.

We are proud to be one of many collection sites across Canada to be working with Clearnfarms for this years event and we encourage you to bring: 

  • old or unwanted agricultural pesticides (identified with a Pest Control Product number on the label)

  • commercial pesticides for golf courses and industrial/commercial pest control products (identified with a Pest Control Product number on the label)

  • livestock/equine medications that are used on-farm for livestock, poultry or horses (identified with a DIN number, serial number, notification number or Pest Control Product number on the label)

NOTE: All items need to be placed in a sealable or spill-proof container.

What NOT to bring:

  • fertilizer, diluted solution, large quantities of unopened product, and treated seed

  • full and unopened jugs of adjuvant or surfactant

  • needles or sharps, medicated feed, aerosol containers, premises disinfectants and sanitizers, veterinary clinic waste and medications, ear tags, or aerosols
