For insecticide, pesticides, herbicide, and fungicides:

Whenever possible, find nature alternatives that are non-toxic. Do not dump or pour any toxic substances own a drain or near bodies of water!

If you have leftover product “use” the remaining amount in an inconspicuous area in your landscaping, garden, lawn, or even your driveway. Otherwise, take it to a collection.
