[GreenYes] ag bags
I asked one of the folks from Ag Bag recently if the bags had recycled
content and they said no. They did say there were markets to recycle them
and I think said they'd take them back for recycling if there was a big
enough quantity, but I wouldn't swear to that!  Contact Ag Bag directly for
more information.  I unfortunately don't have contact information handy.

Mike:
I heard back from the local compost collection vendor -- Golden Gate
Disposal.
He thinks that they use recycled content plastic in their Ag-bags and also
haul it to their transfer station and recycle the ag-bags after end use.
But he was not completely sure.
He asked you to contact: Chris Taylor or Greg Pryor at B&J Landfill
Composting.
