KDHE parmered with the Kansas Farm Bureau and Safety-Kleen Cor- i poration to encourage farmers, ranch- ers, and homeowners to collect left- over products and deliver them to des- iguated collection sites throughout Kansas. The material was then prop- erly disposed of by Safety-Kleen. Because of concerns over the toxic- ity and cancer causing potential, pro- duction of pesticides containing diox- ins has long been prohibited by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, but some private stockpiles still exist. Nearly 6,600 pounds ofdioxin-con- taminated pesticides were collected from 27 sites between Aug. 16 and Oct. 16, 1999. Packing material ac- counts for about 25 percent of the total weight received. Twenty seven coun- ties participated including Jewell County with an estimated 25pounds. Car rolls overturns on county-line road A Formoso man, Terry D.
