Farm Plastics Regulations Enforcement

Waste Management

The Farm Plastics Regulations  place an obligation on farmers to recover farm plastic waste generated. The Irish Farm Films Producers' Group (IFFPG) provides a free plastic recovery scheme. Call the national Farm Films Recovery hotline on 1890 300444 to arrange for free disposal of your used farm plastic film.   

Under no circumstances should farm plastic be burned or buried. This practice may result in prosecution under the Air Pollution Act, 1987 or the Waste Management Act, 1996.
