The Irish Farm Film Producers Group CLG (IFFPG) has released details of its September 2022 farm plastics (silage wrap) recycling bring centres.
According to the group, you can recycle silage wrap for €35 per ½ tonne, once you provide a label code and proof of your purchase (sales docket/invoice).
Farmers must also ask their supplier for the IFFPG label code number.
In addition to silage wrap, farmers can also recycle netting and twine for €5 per ½-tonne bag, or bulk fertiliser/meal bags (remover liners), small fertiliser/meal bags (including bulk liners) and drums (ensure you triple rinse) for €10 per ½-tonne bag.
