Banned pesticide

Asked November 23, 2015, 8:19 PM EST

My parent have a ranch in east Texas and we just found a 5-gallon metal container, about half full, of a banned pesticide. Where can we take it to dispose of it safely and legally?

Hello,
Please go to this webpage on our website:

This is a list of approved hazardous waste facilities in Texas. Currently, there is no government -sponsored program to collect unwanted pesticides. We wrote a bill for the last legislative session to fund a collection program but it was not successful. Good luck,
