Farm Plastic Recycling Service

Farm Plastic Recycling For UK Businesses

Waste Management Regulations in the UK made it illegal for farms to burn or bury waste on their property in 2006. As a response to this impactful change, Plastic Expert has provided agricultural waste management and farm plastic waste recycling.
This makes it much easier to deal with the waste generated on your land, and recycle plastic. The alternative would result in plastic waste filling up incineration facilities and landfill sites.
We can collect bulk loads of your agricultural plastic farm waste, ensuring it is handled safely and recycled effectively. Whether you produce plastic waste streams or hazardous waste that can cause harm to the environment and human health, we are here to help. Following duty of care we will provide hazardous waste consignment notes providing a clear audit of your waste.

Farm Plastic Waste Regulations in the UK

As an agricultural business in the UK, it’s essential to be aware of the regulations concerning farm plastic waste. It is estimated that UK farms produce 135,500 tonnes of contaminated agricultural plastic waste each year. Compliance with these regulations not only promotes environmental sustainability but also ensures your business remains in good standing. 
In the 2022-23 financial year, The Environment Agency’s farming team carried out 4,000 farm inspections. This resulted in 1,536 recorded as non-compliant.
Here are some key regulations that apply to farm plastic waste:

The ban on burning or burying waste plastic on farms came into effect in 2006.

Waste plastics must be separated and clean to minimise contaminations.

Farmers are encouraged to reuse and recycle where possible to minimise plastic waste.

Emphasis on collaboration is made to enable bulk purchasing or reduce costs of disposal of plastics.
