Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Minister, Oneil Carlier, says the agriculture plastic recycling pilot program is getting a funding boost.

On Wednesday, February 6, Carlier said on Twitter the Provincial Government will be investing one million dollars in the pilot, which is up from the original $750,000 announced in January.

The three-year pilot program will focus on recycling twine and grain bags in Alberta.

Carlier says the extra funding is because of so much positive feedback from the rural community.
