Pesticide Container Inspection
To protect the environment and the public's health, Disposal Certificates ensure only empty and properly rinsed containers are delivered to local landfills or other proper facilities.
Local agriculturalists and growers who wish to dispose of empty and properly rinsed pesticide containers must first obtain a "Pesticide Container Disposal Certificate" from the County of San Luis Obispo Department of Agriculture/Weights and Measures prior to taking the containers to a local landfill.
Emptied and properly rinsed pesticide containers must be inspected by Inspectors from the County of San Luis Obispo Department of Agriculture/Weights and Measures Pesticide Use Enforcement Program prior to issuance of the certificate.
Contact the County of San Luis Obispo Department of Agriculture/Weights and Measures for an appointment for a container inspection. Please see the document "Pesticide Container Disposal Info" (Spanish) for details on the requirements.
