The pesticide disposal day conducted in Pasquotank County on Tuesday, October 17th by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture Pesticide Disposal Assistance Program and the Pasquotank County Center of the N.C. Cooperative Extension collected 3,214 pounds of unwanted/obsolete pesticides in a total of 450containers from farmers, and homeowners. This program saved the participants of this program at least $3,214 in disposal fees.  If the individuals that used this program had disposed of these pesticides on their own through licensed hazardous waste companies, the cost could have easily been 10 times that amount. The big benefit of this program is that the pesticides were disposed of in an environmentally sound manner.
