Georgia Clean Day is a program that gives everyone an opportunity to discard old, unusable, or cancelled pesticides to a hazardous waste contractor for disposal.

Pesticides in leaking containers or disposed of improperly may cause environmental damage by contaminating water supplies or harming people and wildlife. Some pesticides that have been used in the past are now in need of proper disposal.

Participation in the Clean Day Program remains free of charge to all private and commercial applicators with the understanding that the event is designed / intended for farmers, lawn care, golf courses, and pest control companies.

The Georgia Department of Agriculture will require pre-registration for this event by April 28, 2022. For more information about the event, please contact your local extension agent, visit the Georgia Department of Agriculture’s website, contact Rick Hayes, coordinator for the event at ricky.hayes@agr.georgia.gov or Office: 404-656-4958  |  Cell: 404-535-1614.
