Media report Extension greenhouse plastic recycling opening in June

Morning Ag Clips and the Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel published a release announcing University of Maine Cooperative Extension is delaying the opening of all drop-off locations for greenhouse plastic recycling until on or about June 21 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The pilot program, originally scheduled to begin in April, was developed by UMaine Extension and funded by a Maine Department of Environmental Protection Waste Diversion grant, according to the release. Online registration opens about two weeks before drop-off sites open. More information is available on the program website or by contacting David McDaniel at
