Sixty-seven growers participated in the Fall Plastic Pesticide Container Recycling Day in Healdsburg on Wednesday, October 29, 2014. Last fall’s event brought in 9,600 pounds from 65 growers. While the number of pounds brought in will not be known for a couple of weeks, it was a substantial pile of plastic diverted into the recycling stream and put toward industrial products. For years, Sonoma County growers have enthusiastically embraced recycling events.
Join us for our next recycling event, Vineyard Materials Recycling Day which will be on Thursday, November 6, from 8:00am- 2:00pm at the Sonoma County Transfer Station located at 166 Alexander Valley Rd., Healdsburg.
