Thank you for joining us at the Ag in Motion show!
Expanding ag waste recycling options for Saskatchewan farmers!
Saskatchewan agricultural producers can drop-off ag waste materials, free of charge at participating collection sites across the province. Our ag-retailer and municipal partners collect and store your ag waste materials; then we arrange for them to be transported for recycling or safe disposal.
Would you like to be part of this program? Here’s how…
