Do you use grain bags? Do you wish there was a better, more environmentally friendly way of getting rid of them? Well the M.D.'s Agriculture and Waste Department has what you're looking for.
This spring, staff from Waste will be making appointments to bring our grain bag roller to you. And there's more good news – it's free.
What is a grain bag roller? It's a machine that will take those long pieces of plastic that used to cover and protect your grain in the field, and roll them up into nice, neat rolls. We'll come to your farm or field, roll up the plastic, and take it away.
The rolls will then be shipped to Southern Alberta, where they will be recycled into plastic pellets. In turn, the pellets will be made into any number of things, including fence posts, picnic tables, lawn furniture and park benches. The cost of shipping the plastic south will be covered by the recycling fee the M.D. will receive.
"This is another step in eliminating agricultural waste that is currently taking up space in our landfills," said Waste Manager, Brad Ollen.
If you're interested in setting up an appointment to get your grain bags recycled, call Brad at 780-826-3951.
