• Free pesticide disposal for farmers, others on Jan. 31
By Linda Green

Farmers holding old or cancelled pesticides in their barns or storage sheds will be able to get rid of these hazards for free by participating in a Jan. 31 Georgia Clean Day.
The Georgia Department of Agriculture, through funding by the General Assembly and with collaboration of the UGA Extension Office, is enabling farmers in nine area counties to legally dispose of pesticides or pesticides that are no longer labeled for use.
“Pesticides in leaking containers or disposed of improperly may cause environmental damage by contaminating water supplies or harming wildlife,” said Frank Watson, county extension agent for Wilkes County.
