FUW to visit waste recycling plant
Farmers have been invited to visit the newly-opened British Polythene Industries (BPI) multi-million pound investment recycling facility in Glamorganshire on Tuesday August 28 at 10.30am.
BPI, who officially opened the plant in March this year, has invested substantially in the state-of-the-art, waste wash plant at its Rhymney factory and Birch Farm Plastic collection have invited FUW members to visit the factory.
"This is an excellent opportunity for our members to view the recycling process first hand and see how the new plant will be used to recycle waste such as used agricultural plastics into products like refuse sacks, sheep feeders, stiles and gates," said FUW Glamorganshire county executive officer Rachel Taylor.
Birch Farm Plastic Collection is a family run business specialising in collecting plastic waste from farms for recycling. Along with the collection from farms, they have collection sites where farmers can take along their waste for a fee.
The collection site operators sort and bale the polythene and arrange the transport to deliver the material in to BPI.
"Many farmers struggle to dispose of plastic from items such as silage wrap, feed bags, fertiliser bags and polytunnels. Visiting this plant will show them an effective, environmentally friendly way of solving this problem," added Miss Taylor.
