Fertilizers & Pesticides (Farms & Businesses)

About Clean Sweep

The Michigan Clean Sweep Program is operated by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD). Since 1996, more than 2.2 million pounds (1,100 tons) of pesticides have been removed from circulation and properly disposed of via permanent collection sites. We accept pesticides from any Michigan resident or business. 

Clean Sweep Program Pesticde Disposal

This program is perfect for agribusinesses, greenhouses, nurseries, and golf courses with expired or unwanted pesticide products and is available at zero cost to Michigan residents or businesses. 

Visit the Michigan Clean Sweep Program website for additional information.  

Schedule an Appointment

Making an appointment depends on the quantity of materials you have. 

  1. If you have less materials than would fit in a typical pick-up truck bed, make an appointment or be a walk-in (for very small amounts) at the Home Toxics Center.
  2. If you have a larger quantity, call our Waste Specialist at (734) 222-3950 to make an appointment so we can guarantee space and staffing to take your materials.

What We Accept

  • Pesticides including herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, etc.
  • Fertilizer with pesticides included in its ingredients

Please note that we CANNOT accept fertilizer without pesticide or other non-pesticide products under the Clean Sweep Program. Examples are pesticides that are organic or biodegradable, or "plant food" that does not contain pesticide in the ingredients. Our staff can inspect materials upon arrival for acceptance.

Since the start of the program, we've collected over 150,000 pounds of pesticides. The graph below shows our yearly totals.
