Event Details

Wellington and East Gippsland Shire Council’s have joined forces to make it easier and cheaper for local farmers to dispose of their silage wrap in an environmentally conscious way.

Silage wrap is made of Linear low density Polyethylene and can be recycled. The surplus silage wrap will be taken to Melbourne for reprocessing into a range of products, fencing materials, road barriers and heavy vehicle tracks.

Burning silage wrap is illegal and it is better for the environment if you don’t bury it or put it in landfill. Cost is $11.00 per bulka bag.

How to recycle:

  • silage wrap can be delivered in bulka bags or plasback bags
  • no net wrap or bale twine
  • silage wrap needs to be shaken clean of silage, gravel and other contaminents
  • if using bulka bags, these must be able to be rolled off your vehicle or trailer at the site
  • payment is cash only and will be receipted
