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.
Information Sessions Last Week of June
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. For those unable to attend in person, we also expect to host a webinar; details will be posted on this page.
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.
