 Plastic is great for sealing silage, but once used is a problem to dispose of and up until
 now, options have been limited.
 •       Burning is illegal
 •       Storage on farm is an eyesore, taking up valuable space
 •       Plastic does not break down, so burying it is not an option, its illegal
 •       Dumping is a littering offence
 Fortunately there is another option, and with your help, farmers can now recycle their
 silage wrap. Farmers are encouraged to deliver the material in compacted form to re-
 duce the amount of fees they will be charged. For reference purposes, each wool bale
 or bulka bag will be charged as one cubic metre. Unclean material will be charged at
 Council’s regular domestic waste disposal rate of $23.00 per cubic metre.
 The material does not need to be sorted into separate colors prior to disposal.
 Some things to remember:
 •       Only clean, dry material will be accepted
 •       It is critical the plastic is not contaminated—no steel,stones,PVC plastic, excess
         soil or plant material.
 •       Any tape used to patch holes in silage bales must be made from the same mate-
         rial or removed prior to recycling.
 What is it recycled into?
 Silage wrap is made of a high quality linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) plastic
 and can be recycled into:
 •       Irrigation/dam linings (mixed with tyre rubber)
 •       Trickle irrigation and low pressure pipe
 •       Roadside/garden furniture
 •       Plastic pellets
 •       Vineyard stakes/oyster poles
