On February 28, 2022, EPA revoked tolerances that have allowed the pesticide chlorpyrifos to be used on food-related applications due to potential health-related exposure risks. More information about this rule can be found here:

EPA Takes Next Step to Keep Chlorpyrifos Out of Food, Protecting Farmworkers and Children’s Health | US EPA

As a result of their ruling, EPA has determined that HHWs are no longer an option for the disposal of this pesticide.

At this time the options for disposal have not yet been determined. More information will be shared as it is received. Chlorpyrifos may be kept and properly stored in its original labeled container for non-food uses until it is disposed. EPA is planning to contact registrants of this product to inform them of labelling amendments and potential buy-back options. The Kansas Department of Agriculture recommends that anyone with questions regarding disposal should reach out to their Pesticide and Fertilizer Program either via their Program’s email: KDA.PestFert@ks.gov or the Program’s main line: 785-564-6688.
