Amphibious bistort on the River Beult - Medway Catchment

Pesticide Amnesty

PROJECT NOW CLOSED….

With support from the National Farmers Union and funded by and in partnership with Southern Water, the Environment Agency, North Kent Marshes Internal Drainage Board and Kent County Council’s Flood and Water Management team, Medway Valley Countryside Partnership are proud to have been running a Pesticide Amnesty project across the Medway Catchment.

Many farms have out of date or unwanted chemicals in store and these can be costly or awkward to dispose of.  To avoid chemicals potentially leaking into our waterways and water supply, we have helped farmers remove these stored chemicals safely.

We have offering free collections for up to 50 litres of chemical per working farm registered.  In order to do this, we teamed up with Chem Clear, a specialist chemical waste collection and disposal company.

Farmers in the catchment registered to take part in the amnesty, confidentially and directly with Chem Clear, throughout January and early Feb’ 2020 and Chem Clear have scheduled the chemical collections for early March 2020.
