Clean Sweep NY is an Environmental Benefit Project for the removal of cancelled, unwanted, unusable, or otherwise obsolete pesticide chemicals from agricultural or non-agricultural entities such as farmers and commercial pesticide applicators who cannot otherwise participate in residential Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events. CleanSweepNY is not available to homeowners.
CleanSweepNY also collects school laboratory chemicals, elemental mercury and mercury containing devices such as thermometers and manometers, and also triple rinsed rigid plastic pesticide containers (HDPE #2) for recycling.
Pre-registration is necessary and registration packets can be mailed to those wishing to participate.
