Sponsored by Cornell University’s Recycling Agricultural Plastics Program (RAPP)
 
RAPP will showcase an array of these products, as well as supplies and equipment for storing and compacting used plastic, at Empire Farm Days. Much of this old plastic is turned into new products by manufacturers right here in New York State. Waste plastics previously used on NYS farms—primarily bale wrap, bunker covers, mulch and greenhouse film—are being transformed into sheets of plastic ‘plywood’, plastic sidewalk pavers, household and industrial-size garbage bags, and diesel fuel, as well as into new plastic containers, films and twine that will once again be used on farms.
