Over a three-day period in October 2002, the Peace River Region Operation CleanFarm set up 17 collection sites for obsolete pesticides that had previously been stored on farms in northern Alberta and British Columbia.  Work to alleviate certain challenges that may have effected collection included compliance of hazardous waste regulation between Alberta and BC, unpredictable weather conditions, and a small timeframe for storage collection.  Plans for future collection in the rest of Alberta are scheduled for 2003 and 2004.
