Event Details

South Gippsland Shire Council is offering local farmers the chance to recycle used silage wrap in an environmentally conscious way.

Silage wrap is made of Linear low density Polyethtlene 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.

The South Gippsland Shire Council continues to support the Plasback program for recycling used plastic. Silage wrap brought into the Foster Transfer Station in Plasback bags will continue to be accepted free of charge.

How to recycle:

  • silage wrap can be delivered in bulka 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

For operating hours of the Foster Transfer Station please contact the South Gippsland Shire Council or visit their web page www.southgippsland.vic.gov.au
