The Irish Farm Film Producer’s Group (IFFPG) is the national farm plastics recycling scheme, funded primarily through a recycling levy which is charged to companies who place farm plastics products on the market, as well as a weight-based collection charge to farmers.
It collects the majority of farm plastics waste at bring-centres (over 200 each year), which are one-to-two-day collection events that are held at locations such as marts and co-ops, and also collects waste at the farmyard.
Since its establishment, IFFPG has collected in excess of 440,000 tonnes of farm plastics waste for recycling, with Irish recyclers supported where possible.
The vast majority of the plastic was collected from farmers at over 200 bring-centres, which the IFFPG held throughout the summer at locations such as livestock marts, co-ops and agri-merchants.
