Operation Cleansweep for collecting and disposing of unwanted pesticides from commercial pesticide users has been funded this year by the Florida legislature.  It has been 3 years since the legislature funded Cleansweep so there may be a number of potential participants out there.

Please help us promote Cleansweep.  Post program information and the flier to your websites.  Include it in any appropriate hazardous waste/pesticide related mailings, emailings, tweets, or similar promotions that you may do. Let commercial pesticide users - farms, ranches, nurseries, golf courses, pest control companies, etc. - know about this free (first 500 pounds, then 89¢/lb) pick up and disposal service when they call, email or you inspect their facilities.  They can register on line starting now. We expect collections to begin in November and go until the money runs out. And it usually does run out, so first come, first served.

Pesticide wholesalers and governmental entities can participate, too, but must pay all the costs at the very attractive state contract rate of 89¢/lb, picked up.

For details, a program flier and how to register, see our Operation Cleansweep web<http://www.dep.state.fl.us/waste/categories/cleansweep-pesticides/default.htm>.

Thank you for helping promote Operation Cleansweep, Jack
