A Pesticide Collection Day on Wednesday, October 31st, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Iredell County Fairgrounds, 630 North Main Street, Troutman.

Nearly all pesticide products (insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, etc.) will be accepted that are in the original containers and are clearly labeled. Materials of unknown identity, paints, or other hazardous waste will NOT be accepted. Participants are asked to save any portion of the label to help identify the material to be disposed of.

If you have containers greater than five gallons in size, such as 30 or 55-gallon drums, please call Nancy Keith at (704) 873-0507 to let us know in advance of the collection so that adequate supplies will be on hand to package the material for transport.
