National is proud that Government funding has enabled more than 650 tonnes of plastic farm waste to be recycled in the past year. The funding helped Plasback supply more than 1000 recycling bins to New Zealand farms. Agricultural plastics such as bale and silage wrap, agrichemical containers and crop bags were collected and recycled into new products.
The aim is to decrease the amount of waste going to our landfills. Our environment is a massive part of our quality of life, and National is helping preserve and protect our most important asset. We know that sensible management of our resources goes hand-in-hand with economic growth and job creation.
