Proper Pesticide Disposal

Not all pesticides are designated hazardous waste.  Hazardous waste is identified as having the following charcteristics:  ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity.  If a pesticide is listed in  OAC Rule 3745-51-33 or 3745-51-24, or exhibits a hazardous characteristic, it is deemed hazardous waste at the point when its user decides to discard it.
