There are two main types of agricultural plastics commonly used in agriculture, not including pesticide and other rigid plastic containers. First is Polyethylene (PE) resins which are found in greenhouse film, silage covers, mulch film, bale bags, bale wrap, grain bags and silage bags.The second is Polypropylene resins which are found in cordage and twine. Many municipal landfills and transfer stations will only accept agricultural plastics if rolled and compacted to their requirements. It is recommended that producers contact their local municipality for further information on requirements.  For the Flagstaff Region contact Flagstaff Regional Solid Waste Management for more information.
