Coastal Agri

Supporting South West agriculture

Silage wrap, feed bags, baling twine, cleaning drums…do you find disposing of agricultural plastic materials a challenge or costly? 

We know the importance of disposing of these items correctly not only to keep you green but more importantly to keep you compliant, that’s why here at Coastal Recycling we can recycle most of your agricultural plastics free of charge. 

How it works? 

  1. Gather and separate your plastic materials (see below for a full list of what we accept).

  2. Make sure you register as a lower tier waste carrier so you can transport your waste to us. Registering is free, simple and lasts for life.

  3. Get your PPE kit ready (hi vis jacket, hard hat and steel toe boots).

  4. Call the resource recovery site (Deep Moor or Kenbury Wood) to book in your slot.

  5. We’ll process the rest and ensure that your agricultural plastics are recycled.  

Agricultural materials we accept

Please ensure that where possible all materials are separated as charges may be incurred if mixed.

Plastics type Example Requirements
