Silage wrap

Thank you but the answer to that one is no.
Why not? The plastic will be unlikely to be genuinely recycled, and most likely get landfilled eventually anyway, albeit in a different country and in a more polluting manner. Surely until we have a genuine recycle solution in place the logical thing is to minimise use as much as possible and put what we still end up using into the best waste route.

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.
Yes Done it with an old Welgar and a Krone . The Krone chain and slat does it really well and very little gets wrapped up any where it shouldn,t
Obviously take care and feed with a prong and don,t stand on anything going into the baler(y)
