Cleanfarms has opened an Alberta office in Lethbridge. The national stewardship organization is best known for its ag-plastics recycling programs for pesticide and fertilizer jugs and totes as well as grain bags.
The organization, which has offices in Quebec, Ontario and Saskatchewan, has hired environmental scientist Davin Johnson for the Lethbridge operation.
Johnson grew up in Alberta and has worked for the past decade in the oil and gas, academic, government and ag sectors. He has helped to organize Cleanfarms’ unwanted pesticide and livestock/equine medication collection program and the newly launched ‘Alberta Ag-plastic. Recycle it!’ pilot program that has 20 locations throughout the province to collect grain bags and twine for recycling.
