Farm plastics disposal

Phil from Kernow Farm Plastics used to collect our fert bags and spray cans every year or so to get the ticket for the red tractor man. I recently had a letter from "Grassroots Recycling" saying they've taken over his business, but apparently they aren't offering a collection service - pay £132 annually and take as much as you like to their site. What other options are there around mid Cornwall - any that collect? Thanks

Where is their site based in Cornwall, it depends how much you take, £132 per year is cheap if you have a lot and it weighs heavy like bale wrap. I used Greenaway last year and can’t fault them, you can pile it all up together and they pick the lot up. I sorted mine as it was bagged in half ton bags so got a discount as it was clean and sorted already, It was around £260/t.
