Why Recycle?

Most of the baling twine discarded after the use of hay bales ends up in a landfill. In some areas it accumulates on landowners’ property or is burned. Twine recycling can be a benefit to your community as you build working relationships while cleaning up the environment. With support from local landfills, county governments, industry, local businesses and national organizations we are seeking to make twine recycling available in all states.

The Impact on Animals

Wildlife and livestock can ingest baling twine and become seriously ill or die. Twine poses an especially deadly strangling hazard to birds. Researchers have reported that baling twine is responsible for entangling and killing around ten percent of osprey chicks annually in some states.
