County accepting herbicides

Marion County Household Hazardous Waste Department Director Rollin Schmidt told Marion County Commission on Monday that the State of Kansas is conducting a statewide sweep to gather up herbicides containing 2,4,5-T, which is now banned and was a major component of Agent Orange.

With the statewide sweep, county residents can take herbicides containing 2,4,5-T to the Household Hazardous Waste Department for disposal. It was commonly used in brush killers, Schmidt said.
