Silage Wrap and Baling Twine Recycling

Farmers within the Shire are welcome to recycle their silage wrap, pit covers and baling twine at a number of locations through Plasback, a nationwide farm plastics recycling program. All that is required of you is a small acceptance fee to cover the costs of shredding by the contractor.

Plasback bins and liners are available from the following retailers in the Shire:

  • Coleraine – McDonald Rural Services
  • Hamilton – Elders
  • Hamilton – Hamilton Farm Supplies

When considering items for recycling, please remember:

  • Silage wrap must be placed in a TAPEX liner bag in order to be accepted: TAPEX liner bags can be purchased on the Plasback website or at farm supply stores
  • Contaminated silage wrap will not be accepted for recycling and will require additional costs to have it placed in the landfill. Contamination includes bale net, twine, steel and general rubbish. (Plastic liners do not have to be cleaned)
