Hazardous Waste Disposal

Nebraska does not have a statewide waste/excess pesticide disposal program. Two options are to hold onto the products and hope that Nebraska will have a disposal program in the future; or pay for disposal yourself. If you choose to hold on to the products, you should periodically monitor the containers for leaks and store them in a cool, dry place where flooding is unlikely. Ideally, they should be stored under lock and key. If you want to pay for disposal, the Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy provides a list of several commercial firms that can consult about the transport, storage, or disposal of waste/excess pesticides. See below for details.
