Published on April 23, 2014

For 20 years, Sonoma County vineyards and wineries have demonstrated a strong commitment to recycling their plastic pesticide and chemical containers. The next Plastic Container Recycling Day will be held on Thursday, May 1, 2014, from 9:00am until 3:00pm at Sonoma County’s Healdsburg Corporation Yard located at 17270 Healdsburg Avenue at Alexander Valley Road in Healdsburg.
