Each spring, all over Ohio, boats come out of their plastic-wrapped winter hibernation for another season on Lake Erie and other waterways. In the fall, those boats get a new coating of shrink-wrap to weather for the Ohio winter.
To help prevent all that plastic from going in the landfill, the Ohio Clean Marinas Program started the Shrink-Wrap Recycling Program in 2006. Ohio marinas have now recycled more than 2.3 million pounds of shrink-wrap. Watch the video by Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
