Wayne Gjerde from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency spoke about plastics and how recycling supports Minnesota jobs. Plastic lumber products are surging and many are made in Minnesota, such as By the Yard outdoor furniture. A new product, Harbor Pier, made in Worthington, will soon be installed in the Duluth harbor. It won't deteriorate and will flex if hit. About 18,000 jobs in Minnesota are related to recycling.
