Contents Notes
"The accumulation of unwanted pesticides and used pesticide containers is becoming an increasingly pressing nationwide problem. Due to the difficulties of collecting materials distributed over wide areas, the states in Region VIII do not yet have coordinated programs to deal specifically with these wastes - most of which are not suited to disposal in municipal sanitary landfills. Under Section 19 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, procedures and regulations for the storage and disposal of unwanted pesticides are in process. The Region VIII Pesticide Disposal Conference and Workshop was conducted so that we can begin laying the groundwork to handle these problems before they present additional hazards to the public and the environment through inadequate or uncontrolled disposal techniques. These proceedings, including the workshop recommendations, are a first attempt at setting up guidelines for the different phases of the disposal process from which we can build workable solutions to these collection and disposal problems."--P. iii.
