Where can I recycle my old silage wrap and sheeting?
Agriland is delighted to team up with the Irish Farm Film Producers Group Ltd (IFFPG) to provide farmers with an easy-to-use map of where they can recycle their old silage wrap and sheeting.
The interactive map is available both on the Agriland website and through the menu section of the app.
The map provides farmers with the locations, times and items that can be recycled in IFFPG Bring Centres throughout the Republic of Ireland.
One of the key features of the map is its ease of use, as colour coding is used to identify the Bring Centres open this week, centres not yet open and where collections have finished.
Users can also find their nearest Bring Centres through the interactive search function.
This feature provides users with the full list of Bring Centres in their chosen county and the opening date of each venue.
Costs of recycling
A wide range of items can be recycled through IFFPG – Ireland’s only approved farm plastics recycling compliance scheme – and it has been responsible for recycling over 250,000t of farm plastics waste since its establishment.
Silage wrap and sheeting can be delivered loose to the Bring Centres at a cost of €15 per 1/2t, but an IFFPG Label Code Number is required to prove you purchased the levied plastic.
Bale netting and twine can be recycled at a cost of €15 per half-tonne fertiliser/feed bag.
This is also the case for triple-rinsed chemical drums, half-tonne fertiliser/feed bags (liners removed) and small fertiliser/feed bags (liners from fertiliser bags and covers off fertiliser pallets can also be included). Launch the interactive map here
