Pesticide labels inform users how to effectively control pests. When used properly, the pesticide product should not harm the applicator, public, or environment. Labels also inform users how to dispose of leftover pesticides both in the original container and in application equipment. Pouring or dumping pesticides on the ground is never a disposal option that pesticide product labels allow - nor do any local, state, or federal regulations. The following case files from the Office of Indiana State Chemist (OISC) highlight examples of improper disposal practices.
