Farm film recycling: May 2023 bring centres
Meanwhile, the Irish Farm Film Producers Group CLG (IFFPG) has released details of its May 2023 silage wrap recycling bring centres.
According to the group, you can recycle silage wrap/film for €35 per ½ tonne once you provide a label code and proof of your purchase (sales docket/invoice).
A bring centre will take place at Manorhamilton Mart on Tuesday, May 30th, 2023, from 9 am to 1 pm, as reported by That’s Farming in this news article.
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 plastic 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 coops, and also collects waste at the farmyard.
