JV Farms Organic, based in Soledad, CA, has launched a revised recycling program to improve their current systems in place and ensure they are being the best stewards of the land possible. The goals of their new program are:

Employees are being educated on items on the farm that are recyclable, including but not limited to plastic pallet wrap, plastic pallet tape, paper, cardboard boxes, plastic sprinkler heads, plastic water and drink bottles, aluminum cans, glass bottles and field flags.
