Farms and other commercial growers in Butler, Lawrence and Somerset counties may register with the state Agriculture Department for disposal of outdated or unused pesticides.

The state's Chemsweep program covers the cost of the first 2,000 pounds per participant. Those with additional waste pesticides pay for the cost of disposal. Any pesticide registered for sale or use in the state will be accepted in this program. The program rotates among counties every three or four years.

The Chemsweep sign-up deadline is the end of March. For details or to apply, read the department's home page at www.agriculture.state.pa.us, then search for Chemsweep.
