Amnesty Day for Agriculture Chemical Containers andĀ Household Hazardous Waste and Recyclables.

On April 19th at the Taylor County Extension Office the Junior Conservation Board (sponsored by the Taylor County Conservation District and in efforts with the Taylor County Extension Service) will be hosting a Amnesty Day for Agriculture Chemical Containers and Household Hazardous Waste and Recyclables.

 

We will be set-up from 9:00am-3:00 pm. We will accept any household chemicals (old bottles of herbicide, pesticide, cleaners, etc.) The Kentucky Department of Agriculture will be there to help with the disposal. We will also be taking paper, plastic, aluminum, tin, and cardboard.

 

David Wayne, Director for Environmental Services at the Kentucky Department of Agriculture said, “The Kentucky Department of Agriculture operates the Unwanted Chemical Collection Program to provide pesticide users an environmentally responsible means of disposal of old and unwanted pesticide products. This keeps these products out landfills and prevents them from potentially contaminating the environment. This is just one of the many ways the KDA is helping to protect the environment of  the Commonwealth of Kentucky.”

 

This is free to the public and anyone that comes and participates in the program gets a free bag of trees in support of Arbor Day and overall community conservation. 

 

We can’t take oil, pressurized aerosols (RAID), glass, or paint. Please help us and our community by participating in this event
