    I have a customer for whom we will be begining lawn treatment for this spring. She wants us to do the front yard only because she doesnt care about the back and is cheap. Anyway she was telling me that she has this fertilizer under her deck that has been their for many years and she was thinking about spreading it herself in her backyard. She couldnt remember what kind it is but she said it was from Pittsburg and people quit using it because it was found to have metal in it.??? :dizzy: Has anybody heard anything like this? What is the worst that could happen if she spread it? If she decided not to spread it would she have to take it to the EPA to dispose of it? thanks

    if its not a "Brick" spreading it would probably be the best way to dispose of it.

    probably too hard to spread. Have to dispose of it on pesticide cleanup day.
