New silage wrap recycling program
A NEW silage plastic recycling program will make it easier and cheaper for local farmers to dispose of silage wrap in an environmentally conscious way.
Coordinated by Wellington, East Gippsland and South Gippsland shires, local farmers are encouraged to drop off used silage wrap in bulka bags at the following points:
Kilmany Transfer Station Yarram Transfer Station Bairnsdale Landfill Orbost Transfer Station Koonwarra Transfer Station Foster Transfer Station Drop-offs can be made from July 17-30 July during normal operating hours. There is a charge of $11 per bulka bag.
Silage wrap dropped off for recycling should be shaken clean of silage, gravel and other contaminants before being bundled up and put in bulka bags.
Farmers should contact their local council for more details.
