    Could anyone in the Hereford/Worcester area please let me know how they get rid of their silage wrap please. We have a huge pile but the person who used to collect it doesn't now. Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    It will regrettably have to go to landfill
    Recycling place won’t take it this year

    Is that 'Farm plastics recycling ' from near Bosbury ? If so they collect ours too.

    Yes, I'm sure that's trading name, we keep a old silage trailer to put wrap, fert bags etc, its suits us to take it few miles, glad he's back at the job, must say a nightmare to get hold of on the phone.
     
  17. This is going to be an increasing problem as export destinations evaporate. Domestic solutions won't be quick to get in place.

    Has anyone tried baling up used plastic with a round baler ? Thought it would be a good idea to keep it tidy but haven’t tried it.
