Eaton County's Department of Resource Recovery has partnered with the Michigan Recycling Coalition and the Michigan Farm Bureau to develop a program for recycling agricultural film plastic. The Resolution to Approve Adoption of Agricultural Plastic Film Recycling Pilot Program (21-4-49) was approved by the Eaton County Board of Commissioners on April 21, 2021 at their regular meeting. In order to adapt the process and make it financially sustainable, this program is a pilot project that is subject to change at any time. The Sunfield Recycling Center was chosen as a collection point for this program because of its existing space/material processing equipment, rural & regional opportune location, and its existing site goals. At a calculated cost (explained further below), agricultural film plastic will be accepted, by appointment only, in addition to the materials already accepted at the site. There is no cost for recycling accepted materials other than agricultural film plastic material at this time.
