LEARN HOW FARMERS CAN CUT FARM PLASTICS RECYCLING COSTS BY A THIRD

first_imgIFFPG, the national farm plastics recycling scheme, teamed up with Tuam’s JFC Manufacturing at its recycling bring-centres this year to highlight to farmers the benefits of storing their farm plastics waste clean and dry. The promotion involved making farmers aware that they can reduce their recycling costs by up to a third by ensuring that farm plastics removed from silage is stored in a clean and dry manner.Farmers were encouraged to enter a free draw at bring-centres, with a prize of a JFC Tidywrap Recycling Bin on offer for the winner in each county. Massive progress has been made in recent years regarding farm plastics recycling in Ireland.IFFPG currently recycles approximately 25,000 tonnes of material annually. This represents a national recycling rate in excess of 70%, among the highest in the EU.The material is collected from farmers at over 200 bring-centres, which are held nationwide in the period April to July each year.For most Irish farmers, farm plastics recycling has become a mainstream activity, which they engage in either every year or every other year. However, due to our climate and current management practices a portion of what is collected at bring-centres is contamination in the form of rainwater.This moisture can increase the weight of the plastic by up to one third and unnecessarily adds to recycling costs of farmers at bring-centres.Farmers can minimise their recycling charges by simply ensuring that they put in place a system in the farmyard that results in silage wraps being stored in a dry location immediately after being removed from bales.One option in this regard is JFC’s Tidywrap Recycling Bin, which was recently launched on the Irish market (RRP €279).The bin allows farmers to store their farm plastics in a dry, clean and easy to use manner and then avail of cost savings at the bring-centre.
