Has anyone ever considered alternative disposal/use for the large
agricultural bags used by dairy farmers to store feed?  These bags (white
on the outside, black on the inside) are LDPE-4.  In theory, they are
recyclable, however, they can't practically be cleaned to recycling standards.

We are encountering farmers who are burning the bags after their one-time
use and would like to offer alternative disposal/use suggestions other than
landfilling the plastic.

Thank you.
