Old pesticides collected in Manitoba, Canada
A collection of unwanted and obsolete pesticides in the Canadian province of Manitoba yielded over 51 tonnes of material. The programme was carried out in October 2008. It was jointly funded by the industry association, CropLife Canada, and the provincial government. The previous collections in Manitoba in 2003 and 2004 yielded 92 tonnes. Over 1,500 tonnes of unwanted or obsolete pesticides have been collected nationwide by CropLife Canada since the programme was established in 1998.
