The Department of Agriculture is offering its CHEMSWEEP program in 19 counties, including Chester County, in 2018. Agricultural businesses and pesticide applicators in these 19 counties can dispose of unwanted pesticides safely before they become a safety hazard or an environmental concern. Licensed pesticide applicators, pesticide dealers, and commercial pesticide application businesses are eligible if they complete the CHEMSWEEP registration and inventory form (available by mail or online) and return it to the Department of Agriculture by February 28, 2018. CHEMSWEEP covers the disposal cost for the first 2,000 pounds per participant. Above that level, participants are billed at the Ag Department’s contracted price.
