The Agriculture Service Board operates pesticide container collection sites in the area. Sites are located at the New Fish Creek, DeBolt, and Puskwaskau transfer stations and are open during regular Landfill/Transfer Station Site Hours These containers can also be dropped off at our pesticide container site at the Field Services Office in Valleyview.
This program is operated throughout the prairie provinces in collaboration with CropLife Canada. Every fall, a contractor is hired to collect and shred empty rinsed pesticide containers, which are then recycled into items such as plastic fence posts or curb stops, or they are incinerated at high temperatures for the creation of energy.
Only empty rinsed pesticide containers are collected through this program, leftover pesticides are collected periodically through an Obsolete Pesticide Collection program also operated in collaboration with CropLife Canada.
