Expert Answer:

Some pesticides do not break down for a long time. They retain their chemical effects in soil, water, wildlife, air and humans as a side effect of their use on pests. Such pesticides are called non-biodegradable pesticides.

Example: D.D.T and Dieldrin can still be found in the environment today, although they are no longer available and have not been used for many years.
