Pesticide Storage And Formulation Shed

Size and Construction The pesticide storage and formulation shed is 16-feet wide by 20-feet long and should be constructed of noncombustible materials. The concrete floor is four inches thick and is troweled to provide a smooth surface. It is recommended that before pouring the concrete floor, a liner of either plastic (30 mils or 0.8 millimeters in thickness) or a bentonite clay and natural soil mixture of at least 6 inches in depth be laid down to reduce any accidental release of pesticides from moving through the soil profile and contaminating subsurface groundwater. Place the shed so that the front entrance is in the direction of prevailing winds for your area.

Alternatives to plastic storage bins

I’m mostly ok with using plastic in those ways. 1) reusable for a lifetime 2) Keep out water 4) Easy to label and stack 5) Easy to freecycle because people always want and can use them So even though we dont love plastic, I do see them as a good long term investment because they really protect our stuff from damage (have had two floods in our basement and only stuff that survived was the stuff in plastic bins). We’ve had ours for over ten years and they get constantly reused, have been through 3 moves and have been essential for making sure our stuff stays clean, dry, bug free in a very damp basement. The other thing we have that works well is an old cedar lined trunk/chest from my grandmother. We have our linens in it, and it keeps moths and bugs out, but it wont do anything it the chest gets wet, and while you might be able to get one on craig’s list, they are very expensive if you buy them new. 4) Easy to label and stack 5) Easy to freecycle because people always want and can use them Quote: Originally Posted by SubliminalDarkness I have less issue with plastic that has a long life span.
