What is the Oklahoma Unwanted Pesticide Disposal program?
The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry is funding a program to help collect and properly dispose of unwanted pesticides that homeowners, farmers, ranchers, commercial applicators, or dealers may have. For future locations and dates check the website listed above.
What are unwanted pesticides?
Unwanted pesticides are pesticides that are unusable as originally intended for various reasons. Unwanted pesticides are leftover pesticides, pesticides that are no longer registered in the state of Oklahoma, pesticides that no longer have labels and pesticides that are no longer identifiable.
Who is eligible to participate and what does it cost?
Oklahoma commercial and non-commercial applicators and pesticide dealers may participate. Oklahoma farmers and ranchers and homeowners can use the program as well. There is no cost for the first 2,000 pounds of pesticides brought in by a participant.
• Liquid pesticide weighs about 10 pounds per gallon.
Will someone pick up my pesticides for me?
No it is the owner’s responsibility to transport the pesticides to the site. Some transportation tips can be
What are the steps to participate in the collection program?
Applicators, homeowners, farmers, and ranchers are not required to pre-register. Dealers are asked to voluntarily pre-register through the OSU Pesticide Safety Education Program. After completing pre-registration requirements, if required, bring unwanted pesticides safely to one of the collection sites. Visit the OSU Pesticide Safety Education Program for information and how to register at
Why are dealers asked to pre-register?
Dealers are asked to pre-register due to the potential of large quantities coming from multiple dealers and/or multiple locations. This allows the contractor to plan the appropriate resources to handle the quantity of pesticides that comes into the collections.
Will the department use my participation in the program as a means to prosecute for illegal management of pesticides?
No, the disposal program is a service program designed to remove unusable pesticides from storage and reduce the potential threat to public health and the environment. Those disposing of pesticides will not be required to provide their names or details on their chemicals. The disposal service is free up to 2,000 pounds.

Isolated thunderstorm chances become possible this evening near the Kansas border as a dryline moves eastward through Central Oklahoma and a cold front drops southeast through Kansas. The greater thunderstorm potential is expected overnight tonight across northeast Oklahoma, especially near the Kansas border as the slow moving cold front overtakes the dryline and enters into the region. A few strong to severe storms may be possible with large hail the primary hazard.

OKLAHOMA CITY (February 19, 2021) — The Oklahoma Department Emergency Management and Homeland Security tonight requested residents impacted by the recent winter storm report property damages online at

"We are requesting all Oklahoma residents who suffered winter storm damages to please report online at," said ODEMHS Director Mark Gower.

Flooding from broken pipes
Power surges that caused damage to furnaces, electrical systems, or major appliances
Number of days without water, gas, or electricity
Number of days displaced by the winter storm
Injuries sustained as a result of the winter storm

Reporting damage helps ODEMHS document the overall impact of the winter storm and helps support the case for further assistance to help homeowners, renters and business owners recover.

Have you ever been plagued by allergies in the middle of winter? Chances are, you caught some cedar fever.

Cedar fever season is almost upon us, and at a time when having a fever – or even catching a slight cold – is borderline taboo, it’s more important than ever to understand the symptoms and the source of this common, central Texas allergy.

Some may be doing some light pruning after the ice storm to remove hanging limbs or dangerous limbs. Just a friendly reminder, topping trees or leaving stubs can lead to stem decay and tree mortality. Additionally, stub cuts can promote weakly attached sprouts that fail as they mature creating larger wounds. Always cut back to the next branch union, never cut in the middle of a branch. And as always, safety first! For more details please visit 🌳 #ProperPruning #IceStorm2020
