Plastic Twine – It can now be recycled at County Transfer Stations

What can you do with all of the used plastic twine?  It can now be recycled at the County of St. Paul Transfer Stations.  Free collection bags for collecting plastic twine are available at the County’s Transfer Stations. 

Why plastic twine should be recycled    Burning the twine is one of the worst options because it releases toxins. It’s estimated that 2,200 tonnes  of plastic twine, on average, is generated on Alberta farms in a year.  That’s a lot that could end up in landfills. 

This pilot project will run until August 2023.   [Note:  The Town of St. Paul and Town of Elk Point Transfer Stations and Evergreen Waste Management Transfer Stations are NOT part of this pilot project.]
