Fall 2014 - A Great Success!
Promoting a Toxic Free Future in New York State
Planning will soon be underway for the 'Spring 2015 CleanSweepNY' collection that will target the counties that make up the lower Hudson River Valley in NYSDEC's Region 3. Pre-registration is required and registration packets can be requested by telephone or e-mail at the following:
CleanSweepNY services are provided to farmers and owners of former farms that have unwanted pesticides on their property, all categories of NYS certified pesticide applicators, cemeteries, golf courses, marinas, and other entities possessing unwanted or unusable pesticides and other waste chemicals. Each participant is responsible for transporting their materials to the collection site.
CleanSweepNY Services are Not Available to Homeowners.
CleanSweepNY results in enhanced stewardship of the environment through the improved management of unusable pesticides and other chemical wastes. These materials can pose human health risks upon exposure and a significant hazard to the groundwater and surface water resources.
CleanSweepNY is an Environmental Benefit Project administered by the Natural Heritage Trust (NHT) which was initially established with approximately $2.2 million from several enforcement settlements in DEC's Pest Management program. The collections are scheduled and organized by NYSDEC with the collaboration of NYSDOT who generously provides sites for the collection of these unwanted chemical materials.
Do not contact NYSDOT for information. Call the number provided above.
CleanSweepNY is supported by Cornell Cooperative Extension, the Agricultural Container Recycling Council, Soil and Water Conservation Districts, New York Farm Bureau, and related grower associations.
