Farm film recycling: What centres will operate in October?

The Irish Farm Film Producers Group CLG (IFFPG) has released details of its October 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.

In this article, we provide dates and locations for centres across Cork, Clare, Kerry, Kilkenny, and Waterford.

According to the group, the centres will generally operate from 9 am-5 pm.

‘Fence De-Fence’

In other news, an incident on her family farm in Mountnugent, Co Cavan inspired 16-year-old Alanna McCabe to create her multi-award-winning ‘Fence De-Fence’ mechanism.

She worked alongside her father, Derek, a civil engineer with a strong interest in suckler farming, breeding Irish draught horses and forestry, to develop various prototypes.

The result was a key-ring device – which is no bigger than a standard bottle opener -that allows a user to push down on or hook up an electric fence without fear of getting shocked.

Fence De-Fence can be attached to a key ring, and there is room on each side for logos, making it ideal for merchandise to promote a whole plethora of businesses, she says.

It is designed, laser cut and manufactured in Ireland and can be produced either in plastic or wood, Alanna explained.

She says the benefits include saving time and improving personal safety.
