Recycling & Reuse
As growers for the Midwest region, we are committed to continue to look for ways to conserve our Earth’s resources and beautify and protect our environment. We utilize poly sheeting in all five of our nursery locations as protective covering for our nearly 3,000 growing shelters and roofing for our greenhouses. While some growers replace their poly coverings every year, we have been able to extend the use of our growing shelter coverings for up to 4 years. During the uncovering process, we use our own custom-fabricated hydraulic poly roller mounted on a skid steer to roll up the poly sheeting into tight bundles. The bundles are then stored safely under cover until the following fall when they are re-distributed, unrolled and re-installed on our growing shelters.
