(1) Upon review and determination that a pesticide is no longer useable, the department may declare a pesticide to be a "waste pesticide."
(2) The department may take possession of a waste pesticide with the owner's written consent for the purpose of disposal.
(3) For the purpose of waste pesticide disposal, the department may:
(a) Become identified as a hazardous waste generator;
(b) Enter into contracts or cooperative agreements to carry out portions of or all of the waste pesticide disposal program. The department may also enter into cooperative agreements to carry out portions of or all of the development of education programs relating to waste pesticide disposal and programs for dissemination of information concerning the department's disposal program.
(4) The department may accept pesticides whose active ingredients are not clearly identifiable for disposal. These pesticides may be analyzed by either the department or a private laboratory. If upon analysis the material is not a pesticide, not identified or not acceptable for disposal, it shall be returned to the owner and/or not accepted for disposal.
