Baler twine, silage bags, bunker covers, and bale wrap are valuable tools used to contain and store feed and many Ontario farmers are interested in finding ways to recycle these items.
Municipalities are also keen to explore ways to divert these plastics to help contribute to a more circular economy and conserve landfill space. Cleanfarms is working in Bruce County to test recycling options for these ag plastics.
Follow these steps to ensure that your used material can be accepted and recycled:
- Pick up a collection bag from participating Bruce County collection sites.
- Shake or sweep out your material, removing as much debris, dirt or ice/snow as possible.
- Place each material in a separate collection bag. Secure a full bag closed with twine or a zip tie.
- Twine can be placed loose in a bag.
- Bale wrap can be rolled up and placed in a bag.
- Pieces of silage bags/covers can be placed in a bag.
- Return bags of material to your local collection site. Don’t forget to take another bag home with you!
