About Clean Sweep

The Michigan Clean Sweep Program makes it easy to get rid of unused, expired or unwanted pesticides - for free! Appointments are required.

Clean Sweep Program Pesticde Disposal

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. This program is perfect for agribusinesses, greenhouses, nurseries, and golf courses with expired or unwanted pesticide products. 

Visit the Michigan Clean Sweep Program website for additional information.  

What We Accept

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

Please note that we can not accept fertilizer without pesticide or other non-pesticide products under the Clean Sweep Program. 


  • Call the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s Solid Waste Program at 734-222-3950 to schedule an appointment. Weekday and some Saturday appointments are available. If leaving a voicemail, please include your name and phone number. Your call will be returned as soon as possible. We are as flexible as possible and ask for at least a two day notice. 
  • Checking in inside the building has been temporarily removed due to Covid-19 safety precautions. Proceed directly to the back corner of the parking lot behind our building. 
  • Showing up without an appointment will not guarantee an employee will be present to help you. Please call ahead and schedule an appointment so we can be there to assist you!
