Recycling Hubs Open

Recycle #4 plastics from your winery
Low-density polyethylene (#4 plastic) can show up in the winery as pallet wrap, sheet plastic (on pallets of glass, for example), bubble wrap, some shipping air cushions, cork bags, and more.

LIVE wineries are continuing this recycling option for all Willamette Valley wineries (regardless of LIVE status) that do not have a convenient solution for these plastics. To facilitate greater recycling rates, a few wineries have offered to act as recycling hubs, please read the general and hub-specific guidelines that follow, and spread the word. Please extend a BIG thanks to our hubs when availing of this service!

General Guidelines
#4 plastic ONLY. We are actively exploring solutions for other plastics—including your PET label backings—but they cannot be combined with the #4 plastic collected at the hubs.
Super-sacks required. Drop your winery’s #4 plastic in super-sacks. These are available from Agri-Plas or from the hubs below.
Read hub-specific guidelines below. If you would like to offer your facility as a hub, let us know.  We would like to identify a location in McMinnville!

Questions and suggestions can be directed to Kevin Green on behalf of LIVE's winery program. Email [email protected] or call 503-914-9160.
