In 1995, Dari began to realize her dream of cleaning up this wasted resource. Starting with plastic binder twine, she created a work force to clean and process the twine into bales of ground material.
Moving north to Oregon, Agri-Plas started processing agricultural plastic in a rented Salem location, that quickly gave way to the need for a larger facility. In 2004, the company moved to its present location, 5016 Waconda Rd. NE, Brooks, Oregon.
Agri-Plas accepts and recycles approximately 10,000,000 pounds of plastic each year- plastic that otherwise would have gone to the burner, into landfills or been stored at agricultural sites.
