The Agricultural Plastics Recycling Group and Alberta Beef Producers have selected Cleanfarms to operate a three-year pilot program in the province to collect agricultural grain bags and twine for recycling.
The first phase of the project is to establish up to 20 collection sites across the province that are intended to be operational by fall 2019.
Webinar for Potential Collection Sites on July 30
Thank you to all those who attended meetings on June 24 and 25 in Edmonton and Calgary respectively. We appreciate your input to the program and sharing your insights and questions with us.
We are also hosting a webinar on July 30. All those who registered as a potential collection site and/or completed a collection site survey will receive a July 26 invitation that includes webinar details.
If you complete a collection site registration after July 26, you will find webinar details at the final screen of the registration. If you have any questions about the webinar, please email Tammy Shields.
Typical Collection Site Requirements
Typical requirements for a site may include but aren’t limited to:
- Location (project requires up to 20 sites covering all major regions of the province)
- Accessibility for a 53-foot semi
- All-season suitability
- Loading capabilities (i.e., loading dock and forklift, grappler, etc.)
- Vector control
Cleanfarms will provide communications and educational support for the program.
Funds for the pilot project were granted by the Government of Alberta and are administered by Alberta Beef Producers.
