OLD TOWN, Maine (WABI) - University of Maine’s Cooperative Extension started a pilot program that’s asking people to recycle unwanted plastic.

The target material for recycling is clear and low density plastic that’s typically used to cover greenhouses and other agricultural structures.

The project, which was funded by a Maine Department of Environmental Protection Waste Diversion Grant, will run through December 15th.

“We have potential vendors already interested in reusing this plastic for other products related to agricultural production.”

In order to recycle plastic with the pilot program, you must register.
