Ag Plastics Recycling

The Wyoming County Program

Wyoming County Soil and Water Conservation District collaborates with Cornell Cooperative Extension to bale and recycle agricultural plastics.  In 2013, 86 bales of agricultural plastics were prepared for recycling.  This is equivalent to approximately 43 tons of plastic!  These bales would normally go into the landfill but are instead shipped out of the county to a recycling plant.

Maple Tubing Recycling

Wyoming County has also recently started collecting maple tubing for recycling.  The tubing is collected in 1-ton tote bags and then shipped to the recycling plant.
