Agrecovery Rural Recycling Programme
New Zealand's number one Rural Recycling Scheme.
Agrecovery is New Zealand's solution for the safe disposal of unwanted agrichemicals, and the recycling of agricultural and horticultural plastics. It’s your safe and sustainable alternative to burning or dumping, a practice now actively discouraged due to proven impacts on health and the environment. Agrecovery programmes are available to all farmers and growers, and other users of agrichemicals, biological, dairy hygiene and animal health products.
Our programmes are good for the reputation of our products and country, beneficial for the environment and better for the health of farming families, workers, animals and land. It’s easy and cheap to recycle plastics and dispose of unwanted agrichemicals. Our operations are nationwide - we do on farm pick ups, have collection depots and host pop up events across the country.
We collect and recycle plastic chemical containers (must be triple rinsed and free from residue), large chemical drums and IBCs (must be free from chemical residue and dirt) and other farm plastics. We also collect and safely dispose of unused and unwanted agrichemicals. Agrecovery programmes are largely funded by participating manufacturers who pay a levy on products sold. This is a great example of product stewardship - it means that the cost to you is minimal and in some cases the service is free.
Stop burying and burning - recycling is easy and takes just a few simple steps! Come and talk to our friendly team at Fieldays or give us a call to see how you can get involved.
