Agrecovery will be recovering the no-longer-needed or expired agrichemicals next month as part of a subsidised or free scheme, but bookings by farmers, growers and contractors close on Friday.
More than 3000 products — some of them dangerous chemicals — are accepted and disposed of by the charitable trust.
Chief executive Tony Wilson said the programme was a critical part of the work the trust did to keep the environment safe for the future of the agriculture and horticulture industries.
"These are chemicals that could pose a safety risk by being left in sheds,” he said. “Recovering old legacy or unwanted chemicals ensures they don’t end up in landfills or in our waterways."
Environment Canterbury (ECan) and the Ashburton, Hurunui, MacKenzie, Selwyn, Timaru, Waimakariri, Waimate and Waitaki district councils are supporting the collections.
