Pennsylvania air and waste laws and regulations restrict the burning of solid waste. Burning agricultural plastics adversely affects the environment and the public’s health, safety and welfare. DEP recommends that farmers either recycle agricultural plastic or take it to a permitted landfill for proper disposal.
DEP has provided some tips on how to prepare agricultural plastics for recycling and a list of companies that accept these for recycling.
