An Agricultural Pesticide Clean Sweep Program is being offered to residents in Boone, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake, LaSalle, McHenry, and Will counties. The focus of this Clean Sweep is to dispose of unwanted pesticides which may be posing an unnecessary threat to their owners and to the surrounding environment. Items eligible for disposal include pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, and other agrichemical related products. Disposal of unwanted pesticides through this program is free of charge. The Illinois Department of Agriculture will be assuming generator status for all products disposed of through this program. This eliminates the participant's liability for the disposal of their products. Please be advised, it is not illegal to own these products, but it is illegal to dispose of them improperly. This program offers a free, legal means of disposal with no associated disposal liability for the participants.
