MAKE USE OF THE SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT PESTICIDE DISPOSAL SCHEME

The Scottish Gamekeepers Association is one of the delivery partners of the Scottish Government's Pesticide Disposal Scheme, aimed at removing banned substances from the environment.
We encourage members to make use of this scheme, which will only be operated for a short, fixed, time.
Rules governing pesticide use, handling and possession, change. If you find any unspecified substance in outbuildings and suspect its use may have changed, please take advantage of this disposal scheme. You can call the SGA office in confidence and any substances can be disposed of, safely and legally. The SGA, as a PAW Scotland partner, has been greatly encouraged by falls in poisoning incidents of wild animals in recent years and continues to work towards making sure this trend continues. You can find more details about the scheme, here: http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Environment/Wildlife-Habitats/paw-scotland/what-you-can-do/pesticides
