A family devoted to the reduction of plastic pollution in agriculture through innovative and unique recycling processes since 2004.
As farmers, we understood the recycling responsibilities that the agricultural industry faced with the introduction of EU legislation to handle and dispose of agricultural plastics correctly. Agri.Cycle was set up to ensure farmers need not worry about compliance with any sustainability measures in farm assurance schemes. By working with us to dispose of your agricultural plastic, as a farmer, you ensure your plastic is recycled and demonstrate your commitment to sustainable farming.

      Frequently Asked Questions.

      From actively talking with farmers at open meetings, farm visits and conferences about the EEC waste directive and its impact on British Agriculture, we’ve come up against some common questions and concerns:
      Will my farm plastic be recycled?
      Yes, last year only 2.5% of plastic collected by Agri.Cycle was sent to landfill. Using Agri.Cycle ensures that your plastic waste is processed responsibly.
      Why do I need to separate my farm plastic?
      Separation is the key to recycling. By separating your plastic into the different waste products, you ensure that your plastic waste can be recycled, reprocessed and reused again. We expect as a customer of Agri.Cycle, you adhere to segregating any material recycled with us.
      What about caps and foils?
      Caps and foils from spray containers must be placed in a separate bag to the rest of the spray container. This bag, if tied off, can be placed inside the spray container bag.
      Will I receive the paperwork needed for farm assurance schemes?
      Yes, all customers receive Waste Transfer Notes for all material they recycle with Agri.Cycle. The Waste Transfer Note is the important document that all assurance schemes are looking for to demonstrate that you are dealing with your material responsibly.
      Why charge PAYG?
      We understand that the quantity of waste that you produce, as a farm, can vary year after year. To accommodate this, we only charge on the bags of material you bring in.
      What does Agri.Cycle not take?
      Agri.Cycle will take all agricultural plastics and cardboard, the only thing we ask is that the material is segregated and as free from contaminants as possible. We aren’t expecting your waste to be squeaky clean; it has come off a farm after all! We will not take hazardous waste or other waste you find on farms.
      How clean does the waste have to be?
      We expect all spray containers to be triple rinsed, all fertilizer, feed and seed bags to be as empty as possible, and try to remove contaminants from silage wrap and sheeting, crop cover, and any other agri-plastic that is disposed of using Agri.Cycle.
      Does different farm plastic cost varying amounts to recycle?

      Yes, the cost to recycle your farm plastic varies from product to product. To learn more, please get a quote.

      Do I keep the bags?

      If you purchase (or deposit for Dumpy & Midi) Agri.Cycle bags, these are replaced on a like for like basis.

      Do I need to be there when my plastic is collected?

      Ideally, the farm owner or manager would be there when disposing of waste as they are legally responsible for the correct disposal of their farm waste. For loading purposes, it is necessary to have someone there to assist the driver loading the material.

      There isn’t a franchise near me, where can I recycle?

      If there is not a franchise near you, please contact Agri.Cycle head office who will be able to offer you an alternative arrangement. This could be that you are placed on a milk round service, directed to a nearby intake day, or we will come and collect your material directly!

      Is Agri.Cycle Green Tractor assured?

      Yes, we are proud to be a founding member of The Green Tractor Scheme. This means that farm plastic recycled with Agri.Cycle has The Green Tractor seal of approval that retailers and other agri-businesses are increasingly looking for from farmers.

      Any other questions?

      Always get in touch with the head office if you have any other questions. Our friendly office team are always on hand to answer any recycling queries you may have.
