Recycling Agricultural Plastics in New York State
MetadataShow full item record
Levitan, Lois; Barros, Ana
Objective of this report compiles and evaluates information about recycling agricultural plastics. Its objective is to facilitate development of an infrastructure in NYS for off-farm disposal of plastic wastes, thus avoiding the environmental health effects and other liabilities of burning, burying, or dumping on-farm. Even in the absence of mature recycling markets, such an infrastructure is crucial because a steady stream of quality feedstock is needed in order for re-processing markets to be developed and secured.
