And of course, plastics are illegal to burn.” Last year interested farmers and community members met with Revolutoin Plastics , a regional re-cycling company to learn the logisitcs of setting up a local pickup. This spring , UW Madison , Divison of Extensoin Community and Natural Resources Educator, Melissa Kono received a grant to bring the Agriculutre Plastics Recycling pick-up to the northern Counties. “In order for this to work, we need to collect at least 20,000 lbs of plastics” , explained Kono, “all while following the guidances for safety under the COVID pandemic.”  Boat storage wraps and green house and high tunnel plastics are also welcome. Plastics should be brought to the event as baled or in Recapture Bags provided by the grant and Revolution Plastics. These bags can be requested when registering. “The 20,000 lbs is a tall order, but there are a lot of plastics out in our region that have served their purpose of storing our excellent forages”, Anklam described. “This may be our chance to really tip the scales for getting our plastics out of the waste stream and re-used to make recycled sustainable plastics for next season.” Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis national origin, which includes language-based discrimination.
