We offer a new, inexpensive*
and environmentally sound ag plastics disposal alternative to row crop growers, nursery growers, citrus growers and agricultural fumigant application
We provide a "win-win" solution for both ag plastics
users and the environment.
Typically, RKO is able to reduce a company's agricultural
plastics disposal fees by at least 50% while annually diverting of millions of pounds of ag plastics from
either entering Florida landfills or being burned on-sight at individual farms.
These older, conventional methods of burning
or landfilling ag plastics can prove to be problematic for both ag plastics users and the environment.
With landfilling, an ag plastics user can incur significant
costs for both contract hauling and landfill tipping-fees. As well, ag plastics buried in our ever-filling, ever-cramped landfills will
not degrade in the absence of UV light.
With burning, the ag plastics user's combined cost
of equipment operators, fuel/propane, burner rigs and associated labor is also significant. Also,
the burning of ag plastics releases "carcinogenic - dioxins."
Both of these old disposal methods place pollutants
either in our atmosphere or soil.
