    Try your local recycle centre, the ones in Meath take pesticides and engine oils. Probably not what they consider commercial quantities though. Have you much?

    There are usually farm waste collection days for chemicals every other year if you can store them safely for a while.

    Take them to the waste management facility in Inagh and hope that they take them, because if you have to dispose

    of them yourself then you are paying a private waste disposal company like enva who will send the liquids for Incineration at the cost of about 150 euro per liter.

    Don't do what most people do and dump them illegally down the drain or somewhere else. Chemicals like Roundup can leach from soil for centuries causing fish kills etc
