Information will be posted if available

It is illegal to burn plastics in Wisconsin. Such burning can release toxic and cancer causing chemicals into the air where they can be inhaled by people and animals or deposited into the soil. Burying plastics is not a good alternative because plastics do not break down completely and often resurface.

Please dispose of your ag plastics in a landfill. Containers with leftover chemicals can be taken to Clean Sweep.
