Recycling Option for Agriculture Materials

UCCE Fresno has researched feasible ways for farmers in Fresno County to recycle drip tape and approved agricultural plastics at little cost ($250) in order to improve sustainability within our large agricultural community. In addition to this, recycling layflat hose is also an option but that does come at an extra cost to the farmer.

 

Recycling the materials mentioned above removes them from the landfills, where they sit for years since they are not commonly recycled and are not able to break down naturally (decompose). There is an answer for local farmers and that answer is located right here in our backyard in the city of Selma. At AJ Waste Solutions, they accept these materials and are willing to pick them up once the materials have been loaded in to a 40 yard roll-off container. Once AJ Waste Solutions has the product on their property, the materials go through a cleaning process and are ultimately turned in to various kinds of products and fashion accessory items (LandfillDzine website)!
