Farm Plastics

The Irish Farm Film Producers Group (IFFPG) is Ireland's compliance scheme for recycling farm plastics.

Farm plastics include silage plastics for pit silage and baled silage. They also include fertiliser bags, feed bags, chemical containers, netting and twine, all of which are categories of plastics that are collected and subsequently recycled.
