County Likes New DNR Plastics Project
About $64 million dollars’ worth of plastics are being buried in Wisconsin landfills each year, when they could be recycled instead. That’s according to a new study commissioned by the state DNR. The agency says it will run a pilot project this spring to expand the recycling of flexible film packaging. Nick Nickels , La Crosse County Sustainability Coordinator, agrees with the program.
DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp says it would be a win win for both the state’s economy and the environment.
