I have mixtures of neem oil and a pyrethroid that I ended up not using and the instructions said not to drain into the sewer. How do I dispose of the liquids??

Thanks

Why not just keep this till next year? Or give to someone who will use it, if you are moving?

sorry, to be more clear, these are diluted mixtures, not bottles of concentrate. diluted mixture needs to be used at the time of treatment and you can't re-use. I didn't realize that and made too much for what I needed at the time.

Spray them on slab base perimeter all the way around house. No waste there.

Apply it at the use rate to other parts of your property or share with a willing neighbor.

Our county has designated hazardous waste drop-off dates once a month or so at certain facilities. The schedule is usually published on our city and county websites. They accept insecticides, old paint, electronics etc. Perhaps your community has a similar arrangement.

I use very few hazardous chemicals, but if I make mixes or dilutions of chemicals I keep the original MSDS or packaging info and also label the container that holds the dilution. Better safe than sorry; that's basic chemical safety both around your own house and for everyone else. When I take chemicals to local hazardous collection events I take that info with me.

Wilco will still accept the OP’s homemade brew.

It’s right down the road from the OP.

Although I’d second the “soak the foundation” approach. Pyrethrum derivatives will break down quickly in UV exposure and neem oil is harmless.

You're so lucky! Our community just went to an ANNUAL drop off - and they don't include oil or electronics! And you even have to make an appointment for your Saturday time slot.
