Pesticide Container Fee

Container Fee Repealed

During the Second Regular Session of the 130th Maine Legislature, LD 1995 was signed by the Governor as an emergency bill. The law repeals Title 36, chapter 725, the pesticide container fee, and takes effect July 1, 2022.

On June 16, 2020, PL 2020, Chapter 548 went into effect and established a fund for portions of operations and outreach activities of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Diagnostic and Research Laboratory. Under this law, the sale of every container of pesticide product in Maine is subject to a 15  fee at the point of sale.

Maine Registered Pesticide Products

By January 31 of each year, the Board of Pesticides Control (BPC) will post a list of all Maine registered pesticide products. This list will include:

  • Product Name
  • EPA Registration Number
  • 25b Designation (Products Registered in Maine Only)

The BPC will update this list annually and added products will be clearly designated. This site will serve as a repository for pesticide product lists.
