dc.description.abstractBlake Putman, field coordinator of Cornell University's Recycling Agricultural Plastics Project (RAPP), interviews dairy farmer Jim Putman and Clinton County, NY, Soil and Water Conservation District manager Steve Mahoney. The three give an overview of how plastic film is used on farms and the few disposal options once it is no longer usable. They describe the nascent recycling program that is a collaborative effort of RAPP, the Clinton County SWCD and other local agencies. An earlier version of this video was submitted to the Pepsi Corporation for a grant competition to fund the recycling program in Northern NY.en_US
