Recycling Hubs Update

We need your HELP to continue recycling winery plastics.

Our recycling partner, Agri-Plas, Inc. continues to experience a challenging recycling market.  In order to continue accepting material from the Hubs (and wineries in general), we need need your help in adequately sorting the plastics which you drop off. 

Recycle #4 plastics from your winery

Low-density polyethylene (#4 plastic) can show up in the winery as pallet wrap, sheet plastic (on pallets of glass, for example), bubble wrap, some shipping air cushions, cork bags, and more.

NO Labels
NO Tape
NO Trash / Trash bags
NO Strapping 
NO Papers
NO Corks
NO Plastic moulds / hard plastic

LIVE wineries are continuing this recycling option for all Willamette Valley wineries (regardless of LIVE status) that do not have a convenient solution for these plastics. To facilitate greater recycling rates, a few wineries have offered to act as recycling Hubs, please read the general and Hub-specific guidelines that follow, and spread the word.
