Global Markets Affect Ag Plastics Recycling
Reduced global demand is affecting all recyclables:- residential, industrial, commercial and agricultural. However, ag plastics have always been low in the ranks of desired materials for recyclers because of their dirt content, and now that there are new global market pressures for better quality, things are even harder. The markets will improve, but we are not able to predict when that will happen.
Mulch Film Lifting Trials
With the help of a grant from the NC Tobacco Trust Fund, WRP has been evaluating farm mulch film retrieval methods that minimize dirt and vegetative debris with our partner, NC State Cooperative Extension. Best management practices and retrieval methods have been developed to reduce contamination and improve the recyclability of mulch films where markets exist.
