Agency, E. P. (n.d.). Abandoned Plastics Find a Home. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Every year, tens of millions of pounds of plant nursery products are wasted. Bailing twine, flower pots, and greenhouse plastics are regularly dumped, burned, or stacked after their useful life. The agriculture industry throws away at least as much plastic as the total amount of curbside recyclables collected across the country. No gardeners reuse plastic materials due to the possibility of lingering diseases and no recyclers take them because of their difficulty to process and their low market value.
