Placeholder Image
MONROE - Green County farmers were able to dispose of low density polyethylene agriculture plastic from silo bags, wrapped bales and bunker covers during a recent collection program this fall. Area farmers brought in over 61,000 pounds of agriculture plastic to the Green County Landfill over a three-week period in November. The goal was to collect 40,000 pounds to fill one truck to supply to the vendor who transported the plastic to their professing facility in Arkansas, where it was cleaned and re-used to manufacture trash liners and agriculture irrigation tubing.
