A pilot program for recycling twine and grain bags is now up and running.
The ‘Alberta Ag-Plastic. Recycle It!’ program, funded by the province and administered by Alberta Beef Producers has 20 drop-off sites.
Collections started in October but producers should check with the site in their area to confirm it is up and running as well as hours of operation and other details.
The list of sites and organizations operating them can be found at cleanfarms.ca (click on the Programs by Province tab and then on Alberta Ag-Plastic. Recycle It!).
The pilot is slated to run for three years and more sites may be added.
