Kewaunee County farmers are part of the 1.5 million pounds of agricultural plastic being saved from landfills after a recycling program began in the area last fall. The free program allows farmers to place their agricultural and silage plastic into an on-site container before being picked up by Revolution Plastics. Kewaunee County UW-Extension Agriculture Educator Aerica Bjurstrom says the program has had a huge impact locally.
After more containers were made available to farmers in Tisch Mills earlier this month, approximately 100 bins have been distributed since last October.
