The pesticide drop-off at Hampshire High School last Saturday gathered 2,410 pounds of materials.
“That is the most we have collected so far,” the West Virginia Department of Agriculture’s Jennifer Hathaway said in a statement. “I was very happy with the results.”
She said about half the items turned in came from households and the rest from farms and businesses.
The event was a collaboration of the Department of Agriculture, the County Commission, Region 8 Solid Waste Authority and the Hampshire County Farm Bureau.
