Our ag centers were recently recognized by Winfield United for their dedication and efforts to eliminate landfill waste and respect the land by recycling agricultural plastic.
What is agricultural plastic?
It is the containers that hold crop protection products such as Bayer’s Delaro.
The jugs are then triple rinsed by the Harvest Land ag center and Winfield United provides large recycling bags where the plastic is placed.
Winfield picks up the waste, and then works with another company to send the plastic through a grinding process to create crash barrels and highway cones.
Congratulations to the top three ag centers for their work in recycling this waste:
Lynn: 1015 lbs.
Winchester: 725 lbs.
Hagerstown: 508 lbs.
We’re proud to continue to find ways to
sustain the environment, the land, and the family farm.
