A number of farm plastic bring centres will be held this week by the Irish Farm Film Producers Group (IFFPG), for farmers to dispose of waste plastic.

Some 18 centres will be held in a number of counties around the country over the coming five days between today, Tuesday, July 9, and Saturday, July 13.

According to the IFFPG, all bring centres will take place from 9:00am to 5:00pm unless otherwise stated.

The organisation also noted that half-tonne bags of net have been reduced from €15 a bag to €5 with the label code or €15 without the code, while a half-tonne bag of meal or fertiliser bags/drums has been reduced from €15 to €10 per bag.

Silage plastic is still €20 per half-tonne with the label code, the IFFPG added.
