Project Safe Send

Farmers, ranchers, pesticide dealers and applicators, government agencies and homeowners with unusable pesticides are encouraged to safely dispose of them at a Project Safe Send site. A site in Williams County will be located in Tioga (425 2nd St SE) from 8 am to 12 pm on July 22nd.

Project Safe Send is a safe, simple and non-regulatory program that helps people safely and legally get rid of unusable pesticides free of charge. Since 1992, more than 10,600 people have brought in over 5.5 million pounds of pesticides to Project Safe Send.
