Pesticide Rinsate Management

MDA would like to remind MCPR members that their facilities must apply pesticide or fertilizer rinsate / precipitation per label directions or in the case of fertilizer at a rate that will not cause environmental damage. Also, please be aware that pesticide rinsate, fertilizer or fertilizer rinsate, pesticide treated seed, are not accepted at waste pesticide collections operated by county Household Hazardous Waste facilities, or at collection events sponsored by the MDA. Please review the Pesticide Rinsate Management fact sheet linked below and dispose of rinsates as directed. Do not bring them for disposal through the waste pesticide collection program. Large volumes of rinsate deplete the revenues allocated to the disposal of straight pesticides that are no longer usable or wanted.
