Door County farmers will have the chance to safely dispose of old fertilizers, insecticides and other chemical during a “Clean Sweep” collection. The event will be held November 3rd at the Door County Highway Department garage on South Duluth Street in Sturgeon Bay. This marks the first time in two years that agricultural chemicals are being collected. Door County U-W Extension Agriculture Agent Annie Deutsch says those bringing larger quantities of chemicals need to contact her office first.
While another “Clean Sweep” collection will also be held November 2nd at the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Station in Sister Bay, agricultural chemicals will only be accepted at the Door County Highway Department garage.
