State Agency to Begin Pesticide Collection Program
The West Virginia Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with the West Virginia Conservation Agency and West Virginia University (WVU) Extension Service, will be conducting a Pesticide Collection this spring.
Applications are available at WVU County Extension offices and the West Virginia Conservation Agency field office in Moorefield. Applications must be turned back in by April 26, 2013.
The purpose of the Pesticide Pickup Program is to determine amount, condition, and types of chemicals in the area. This also allows collection crews to determine a collection site and schedule the pickups.
For more information, contact the West Virginia Conservation Agency at (304)538-7581, or contact your WVU Extension Service Office.
