If you have recently gotten rid of some pests but are still plagued by left over pesticides the Missouri Department of Natural Resources wants to help you out. This Saturday they will be collecting old or unused pesticides in Benton. The program helps keep these items from being dumped in ditches or city landfills. Scott County Emergency Management Director Thomas Beardslee tells KZIM-KSIM they are serving the southeast Missouri region. You can deliver your waste between 9 and 4 PM at the Scott County Maintenance Shed at 4-97 Charleston St. in Benton. For more information call 545-3549.
