Neonicotinoid Pesticides

There are restrictions on pesticides that contain neonicotinoid pesticides because they are highly toxic to bees and other pollinators. Please check your household for these products, remove them from use, and bring to the Trumbull Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day for proper disposal.
