To help protect our state's natural resources and prevent agricultural pollution the State of Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) assists with the proper disposal of outdated, unused or unwanted pesticides through the Clean Sweep program.
Clean Sweep is made possible by a strong and unique state, federal, local, and industry partnership. There are several Clean Sweep sites around the state, however, schedule of collections will vary from county to county. Please contact the site you choose to utilize directly for specific information.

Since 1996, more than 2.2 million pounds (1100 tons) of pesticides have been removed from circulation and properly disposed of via permanent collection sites.
Agribusiness, Greenhouses, Nurseries, Pesticide dealers and individuals who sell and/or apply pesticides - you are eligible to dispose of unused or unwanted pesticides as well. Please contact one of the site managers to discuss collection specifics.
No fertilizers will be accepted as part of Clean Sweep unless they are part of a pesticide formulation.
