Copper anti-theft products and “no burn” legislation
Seventeen states have adopted “no burn” laws in support of growers. To date, Paige Agwire has worked with numerous state legislations, including Maryland and Missouri, to push for “no burn” laws, but without continued grower support, momentum is limited. More public support is needed to push for the legislation needed to hold scrap dealers accountable for accepting burned cable.
Paige Agwire also supports the End Copper Theft™ campaign, created by Southwire Company, North America’s leading manufacturer of wire and cable, and supported by the Institution of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), Valley Irrigation, an original equipment manufacturer and worldwide leader in precision irrigation, Schnitzer Steel Industries, Inc., one of the nation's largest recyclers of scrap metal, and Net Irrigate, LLC, a manufacturer of Wireless Agricultural Irrigation Monitoring technology.
The campaign was initiated to raise awareness among growers, irrigation dealers, metal recyclers, law enforcement, and legislators about how they can be part of the solution. Agriculture is foundational to the U.S. economy and the future of this industry will be impacted by who makes the next move — growers or thieves.
