Canada extends pesticide collection scheme

Farmers in the Canadian province of Manitoba have been invited to dispose of unwanted pesticides and veterinary medicines at the same time. The pilot scheme was organised by the agrochemical industry’s CleanFarms initiative and the Canadian Animal Health Institute. Obsolete pesticide collections have also been arranged in the provinces of British Columbia, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan this month. Farmers in New Brunswick have returned some 17.5 tonnes of unwanted pesticides since 1998, while those in British Columbia have deposited over 226 tonnes and those in Saskatchewan more than 316 tonnes over the same period, CleanFarms points out.
