Farmers in the Kawartha Lakes area will be asked to take part in an agricultural plastics survey this year.
Since 2009, the City of Kawartha Lakes has delivered a municipal bale wrap recycling program at two locations.
This study will provide another layer of support to local farmers. It will provide a thorough analysis of how ag plastics are currently being managed and help identify barriers and opportunities. Farmers who are interested in participating can contact Cori Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kawartha Conservation and Cleanfarms are partnering on this project as part of joint efforts to support stewardship best practices and help keep agricultural communities clean.
Ontario farmers are keenly interested in diverting agricultural waste out of landfills and into stewardship programs. Good waste management goes hand in hand with agriculture’s commitment to a clean environment and natural resources for future generations.
Cleanfarms looks forward to sharing the result of this work with stakeholders within the Kawartha Lakes area and the surrounding regions. Email us to join our mailing list.
Funding for this program comes from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs through the Lake Simcoe Protection Plan.
