Just One Question: How to Safely Dispose of Pesticides

March 17, 2015 in KRCL Music Blog by Lara Jones

This edition of Just One Question comes with the help of Aldine, KRCL’s Punk Rock Farmer. He’s been helping us out with DIY gardening tips and strategies by sharing what he does at home or talking with other gardeners, urban farmers, and subject matter experts in town. He’s not afraid to get his hands in the dirt to showcase the Do’s and Don’ts of a healthy garden. He learned a lot about growing stuff from his Dad, but one of the things he’s decided he doesn’t want to do is use poisons and pesticides. And that means there’s Just One Question from the Punk Rock Farmer—how do you safely dispose of pesticides and other household hazardous waste? We turned to Mitch Davis of SLC Sanitation for the lowdown:
