WI wants to increase plastics recycling

Posted:
MADISON – The state wants to increase plastics recycling and needs input from the public.
 
Wisconsin's Council on Recycling has a new campaign that will focus on increasing the recovery of plastic films and bags, rigid plastic products and packaging like deli trays, buckets, toys, plastic furniture and plastic bottles. A study by the Department of Natural Resources last fall found that Wisconsin could gain substantial economic benefits if it recycles the estimated $64 million in plastics that now head to landfills every year.
