Pesticide Container Recycling Program

The DANR offers a waste pesticide, disposal, and pesticide container recycling program pursuant to SDCL 38:20A:54. All eligible waste pesticides are based on the toxicity of the pesticide, condition of the container, and the potential for the pesticide to harm human health or the environment. In accordance with ARSD 12:56:18, all containers must meet specific requirements to be accepted in the recycling program.

Waste Pesticide Collection Program

Any pesticide formulation can be considered waste (unusable) if:

The label uses have been canceled (i.e. DDT and toxaphene)

The product is no longer in usable condition (i.e. dry products that have caked or liquids that have settled and can’t be remixed)

The product is unidentifiable or the label is missing, making proper use impossible
