Agrecovery One Stop Shop event in Stratford - held Tuesday 11 May 2021.

Visit https://agrecovery.co.nz/rural-waste-project/ this week to sign up so you don't miss out. Registrations close 4 May 2021.

What's the event about?

Rural communities can recycle or sustainably dispose of agrichemical containers and drums, unwanted agrichemicals, used motor oil, and seed, feed and fertiliser bags.

With backing from the Ministry for the Environment, Agrecovery is offering farmers and growers the chance to repurpose this waste into useful new materials or sustainably recover what can’t be recycled.

These events are part of the New Zealand Rural Waste Minimisation Project which aims to preserve the environment by finding ways for rural communities to better manage on-farm waste and remove some of the recycling challenges they face.

Waste eligible for drop off will include:

  • Unwanted and unused agricultural chemicals
  • Empty agrichemical containers & drums, as per existing agrecovery programme
  • Waste oil from agricultural users
  • Woven polypropylene e.g. fertiliser & feed bags
