National Pesticide Stewardship Webinar Discussion
Monday, July 10, 2017 (1:00 pm - 3:00 pm ET)

PowerPoint Slides: Coming soon. 

Webinar Recording: Coming soon. 

 

Topic Summary:

Many household and agricultural pesticides contain hazardous and toxic materials that harm our environment if they are not properly managed. While some communities provide collection opportunities and conduct regular outreach about proper waste pesticide management, others lack the technical knowledge and resources to do so. These products are expensive for governments to manage safely, which contributes to stockpiles of unwanted pesticides that pose health and environmental hazards. In this two-hour webinar discussion, government and industry speakers from the U.S. and Canada will propel forward the national movement to improve pesticide stewardship. The Product Stewardship Institute and its expert speakers will assess the problem with leftover pesticides and help attendees come to agreement on goals for improving their management. Speakers and webinar attendees will work together to discuss potential solutions, identify data gaps, and ultimately develop a road map for environmentally and economically sustainable pesticide management in the U.S.
