Lawn and Garden Care Products
Much of the pesticides and fertilizers used on lawns and gardens wash away into local waterways before they even have time to do their job. Feeding your lawn and garden with organic compost and providing optimum growth conditions, will keep your grass and plants healthy and relatively pest free. For more information on maintaining a chemical-free lawn or garden, visit Metro Vancouver’s website at www.metrovancouver.org and check out their Natural Yard Care Guide.
Pesticides/insecticides and herbicides are included in a province-wide household hazardous waste recycling program. They can be dropped off at a number of depots for free and safe disposal. Contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline or visit www.productcare.org to find the nearest depot to you.
