Reducing Farm Waste

A great quantity of waste materials can be generated during the operation of a farm, materials can be been difficult or costly to dispose of.

There are now alternatives to dumping or burning plastic farm waste, by recycling them through accredited voluntary product stewardship schemes. Plasback and Agrecovery both run recycling schemes for a number of different types of farm plastics, and Agrecovery also runs an agrichemical take-back scheme for unwanted or expired farm chemicals.
