Scotland UK launches illegal pesticide collection drive

Scotland, UK has launched a scheme to get rid of illegal pesticides that could be used to poison wildlife. The scheme will allow those who know, or suspect they are in possession of certain pesticides that are illegal, to dispose of them safely and confidentially. Only selected substances will be accepted through the scheme. The pesticides include aldicarb, carbofuran, carbosulfan, isofenphos, mevinphos, sodium cyanide, strychnine, most types of bendiocarb, banned or expired formulations of chloralose, especially those containing more than 5% chloralose (weaker ready-to-use formulations are still legally sold for indoor rodent control), and banned or expired formulations of aluminium phosphide.
