Green Plus Plastics LLC and Plastic Recycling Inc. each are getting $150,000 from the Recycling Market Development Program administered by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.

New equipment will include a grinder, wash line, dryer, extruders, conveyors and storage bins, the state said. This will allow the company to process dirtier materials such as agricultural films and films from retailers and trash haulers.
