This study has compiled and organized information that will be useful to responsible authorities in advising the layman (particularly the homeowner and small farmer) how to dispose properly of small amounts of surplus and unwanted pesticides and pesticide containers, and in treating pesticide spills. The report brings together available information on pesticide disposal methods and on over 550 individual pesticides, and evaluates this information in terms of the experience and equipment that the average layman has. Fourteen pesticide disposal procedures are described and procedures for disposal of containers and cleanup and treatment of spills are included. Preferred and alternate disposal procedures are recommend for over 550 pesticides. The report includes a cross-index of over 1,600 pesticide names, tables showing the chemical composition and properties pertinent to disposal of the selected pesticides and bibliography of 166 references.
