Each October, the Maine Board of Pesticides Control conducts a program to collect and properly dispose of banned and unusable pesticides from homeowners and farms. Preregistration is required and collections are held at four sites across the state. More information about the program may be found below.
Our next collection will be held during October 2022, one day each in Presque Isle, Bangor, Augusta, and Portland. More details coming soon. Registrations for the October 2022 collection must be submitted by September 26 . Use the forms below to register. If you need to immediately dispose of a pesticide, please contact your local Department of Environmental Protection. Additionally, many local municipalities hold household hazardous waste programs during the summer months where residents may dispose of many different kinds of household hazardous wastes.
