Saskatchewan growers can recycle twine in this pilot project!
Baler twine is a valuable tool used to wrap and store hay, straw and silage but at the end of its useful life, it can be challenging to manage. Disposing of it in landfill can result in the twine twisting around the wheels of equipment and disposal by burning or burying is detrimental to the environment.
Through this pilot project, we encourage Saskatchewan growers that use twine to bring it back for recycling at more than 30 existing grain bag recycling collection sites. The pilot will run for a three year period, providing important information that we’ll use to design twine recovery programs that can be used coast to coast.
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada through Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Canadian Agricultural Strategic Priorities Program (CASPP), a $50.3 million, five-year investment to help the agricultural sector adapt and remain competitive.
