CAHI and our member companies are a proud partner of the Obsolete Livestock Medication Collection program, operated by Cleanfarms


Obsolete Livestock Medication Collection

In 2014, the Canadian Animal Health Institute (CAHI) first partnered with CleanFarms to offer Canadian livestock and horse owners a national program to collect and safely dispose of unwanted and/or expired animal medications.  The animal component of this industry-led program builds on the highly successful obsolete pesticide collection program that has been in place since 1998.  This unique program offers farmers an environmentally responsible way to dispose of unwanted or expired products, free of charge.

Obsolete collections are offered in each province once every three years. Farmers drop off their obsolete materials at a designated collection site. In between collection periods, farmers are asked to safely store their medications until they can properly dispose of them through this program.  Collected products are safely transported to a high temperature incineration facility for disposal.

Cleanfarms operates collection programs for obsolete pesticides and livestock/equine medications in each region, once every three years, in partnership with CropLife Canada and the Canadian Animal Health Institute.

Every summer, CleanFarms posts new information about collection sites, dates, times and exact locations. When collections are taking place, Cleanfarms and CAHI also tweet out information every week.

This program is intended for farmers to dispose of small amounts of old or unused product.

It is not intended for veterinary clinics, government organizations or municipalities that are not directly involved in agricultural production or research.

Farmers drop off their obsolete materials at a designated collection site at no charge and the products are transported to a high temperature incineration facility where they are safely disposed of.
