AG PLASTICS RECYCLING FOR SAUK COUNTY RESIDENTS

When:  Wednesday, July 20, 2022

Where: Sauk County Highway Shop- 620 HWY 136, West Baraboo ***Please note that since there is construction taking place at the highway shop our exact collection location has moved. I have attached a map showing where we will be collecting the plastic for our March event. If there are any changes in our collection site, I will notify you in advance.

 

Farmers will be able to drop off their silage bags, bunker covers, bale wrap, plastic feed bags, and hoop film for FREE.  Plastic feed bags and hoop film MUST be kept separate from other plastics being recycled.  Plastic baler twine will not be accepted but can be used to tie loose plastic into bundles. Net wrap is not accepted. Please do not bring it to the collection or hide it in the supersacks.

 

Loose plastics are not accepted. The plastics must be as clean and dry as possible to maximize recycling opportunities. All plastics should be in Recapture Bags or tied into tight, manageable bundles with twine. Recapture Bags are available at the Sauk County Land Resources and Environment Department office. Each Sauk County farm may receive up to 5 bags for free each year. Recapture bags can hold about 200 lbs. of plastics. The plastics must be as clean and dry as possible to maximize recycling opportunities.

 

Recycling these plastics keeps them out of landfills and can reduce disposal costs for farmers.  Burning plastic is illegal and a dangerous source of air pollution.
