Each year The Ohio Department of Agriculture sponsors the collection of unwanted agricultural pesticides in a few locations across the state.  Last year Wayne County was a host location so it will be awhile before the collection is back here.  This year there are two collection points within a couple of hours drive, but if you have a quantity of chemicals to dispose of, the drive may be worth it.  The collection is only for farm-related chemicals so household or non-farm pesticides will not be accepted. The 2015 dates and locations are:

Mahoning County
August 13, 9:30 - 2:00
Canfield Fairgrounds
7265 Columbiana-Canfield Rd.
Canfield, OH 44406

Crawford County
August 26, 9:30 - 2:00

Crawford County Fairgrounds
610 Whestone St.
Bucyrus, Ohio 44820

The pesticide collection and disposal service is free of charge, but only farm chemicals will be accepted. Household pesticides, paints, solvents, antifreeze or other non-farm pesticides will not be accepted.  No pesticides will be accepted from commercial companies.  All collections will run from 9:30 A.M. to 2:30 P.M.
