Abstract
This report seeks to highlight the pesticide disposal problem, identify sources of dilute solutions, describe current disposal practices, and consider factors which influence a choice among them. These dilute solutions are generated by container rinsing, equipment washing, water from pesticide fire-fighting operations, spill clean-ups, and drum reconditioning operations. If disposed of carelessly, the contained pesticides can build up to toxic levels in soils, deactivate sewage treatment plants, etc. Nine disposal methods currently in use have been identified and are discussed.
