Pesticide and Herbicide Disposal Scheme
As part of our PestSmart campaign, we ran a free and confidential disposal scheme for farmers, growers, foresters and land managers to safely dispose of any unwanted, out of date or now unlicensed pesticides and herbicides which are difficult or expensive to dispose of.
By providing this disposal scheme in targeted catchment areas, we aimed to work with land managers to safeguard raw water quality before it reaches our water treatment works by minimising the risk of unintended losses into water or wider environment.
