Recycling tunnel cover plastic

Plastic recycling in agricultural settings is a big challenge. TunnelBerries researcher, Lois Levitan from Cornell University, has been working to build an agricultural plastic recycling network. Tunnel cover plastics are well-suited for recycling, but much depends on how materials are handled on the farm. Below are plastic film handling guidelines.



For more detailed information on the process of recycling agricultural plastics, see  "Recycling Agricultural Plastics: What Have We Learned?" by Lois Levitan.
