Cleanfarms is excited to be working with communities across Saskatchewan to offer a province-wide recycling program for grain bags.
Check back soon for the latest information on this growing program.
Funding for the 2018 grain bag recycling program has been provided, in part, by Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Agriculture through the federal-provincial Growing Forward 2 initiative.
Farmers drop off clean, rolled grain bags at the nearest collection site at no charge. After the grain bags are collected and processed, they are recycled into new products, such as garbage bags.
Please note that this program targets grain bags only. Net wrap, silage tarps, bale wrap and twine will not be accepted at this time
Saskatchewan farmers have clearly embraced grain bag recycling. More than 4 million kilograms have been collected through various pilot programs that have been available since 2011. Cleanfarms is looking forward to seeing this figure grow as the program expands across the province.
