Pesticides stockpiles in Africa

Year: 2005
From collection: Vital Waste Graphics
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Mountains of obsolete pesticides are stockpiled in Africa. Problems with labelling, storage, and the supply of unsuitable products, means that they sit around unused, some for as long as 40 years. They include poisons long ago banned (e.g. DDT, aldrin, dieldrin, chlordane, heptachlor, and others). In some cases the pesticides have leaked from damaged containers. Unable to dispose of them safely the likelihood is that the piles will continue to grow.
